A federal appeals court has ordered a Pennsylvania lawyer to pay his opponents’ appellate legal fees for filing a “frivolous” appeal and submitting a brief “that was essentially a copy of the one he filed in the district court.”

“Because the substance of this appeal is as frivolous as its form,” the appeals court said, “we will affirm the district court’s summary judgment and grant [the appellee’s] motion for damages under Rule 38 of the Federal Rules of Appellate Procedure.”

COVID-19's impact in the legal industry was a big call in this case where some blame pandemic stress and fatigue as a potential cause of the attorney's actions.
