Auto-Owners Insurance Co. v. Summit Park Townhome Assoc., No. 16-1348 (10th Cir. 2018)Annotate this Case
William Harris and David Pettinato were attorneys who represented Summit Park Townhome Association. While representing Summit Park against its insurer, the two attorneys were sanctioned for failing to disclose information. In this appeal, the attorneys raised five arguments to challenge the sanctions. After review, the Tenth Circuit affirmed: “Regardless of whether the district court had authority to require the disclosures, the attorneys were obligated to comply. They did not, and the district court acted reasonably in issuing sanctions, determining the scope of the sanctions, and calculating the amount of the sanctions.”
The court issued a subsequent related opinion or order on March 30, 2018.
