New York Personal Injury Law Firm Sanctioned $6,000 For "Spiteful" Lawsuit

This falls under the "Stupid is as Stupid does" Forrest Gump category.

It was inevitable. A woman hired New York personal injury law firm Morelli Ratner to represent her in a medical malpractice case. Shortly thereafter her case was dismissed and the woman brought a lawsuit for legal malpractice against her lawyers. Morelli Rattner then brought a lawsuit against the woman (their former client) seeking to recover $6,000 in expenses that they had incurred to prosecute her medical malpractice matter.

In a scathing decision by Judge Goodman in New York County Supreme Court, she sanctioned the law firm of Morelli Rattner $6,000 for their ridiculous lawsuit seeking to recover legal expenses against their former client. She called their lawsuit "spiteful" and "wasteful."

Law.com, where this story initially appeared, reported the case name: Kremen v. Benedict P. Morelli & Associates, P.C., 101739/06.

Unbelievable.
