NXIVM Corporation et al v. O'Hara et al
ORDER - That the Bronfman's 128 Motion for Sanctions is DENIED. Signed by Chief Judge Gary L. Sharpe on 6/22/2012. (jel, )
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
NORTHERN DISTRICT OF NEW YORK
NXIVM CORPORATION et al.,
JOSEPH J. O’HARA et al.,
Pending before the court is the motion of plaintiffs Clare W.
Bronfman and Sara R. Bronfman (“the Bronfmans”) seeking Rule 11
sanctions against defendant pro se Joseph J. O’Hara. (See Dkt. No. 128.)
The Bronfmans contend, among other things, that O’Hara violated Rule
11(b)(1) and (3) by filing his response to their motion for summary
judgment, (see Dkt. No. 122), which contained “malicious and scurrilous
attacks . . . that serve no legitimate purpose in this litigation.” (Dkt. No.
128, Attach. 1. at 6, 10.) O’Hara has not filed any response to the motion.
After carefully reviewing the Bronfmans’ arguments, the court deems the
requested sanctions inappropriate, and, therefore, denies the motion.
ACCORDINGLY, it is hereby
ORDERED that the Bronfmans’ motion (Dkt. No. 128) is DENIED;
and it is further
ORDERED that the Clerk provide a copy of this Order to the parties.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
