Inherent Authority

Posted By ACEDS Staff, Wednesday, January 10, 2018

Inherent Authority
The US Supreme Court examined the inherent authority of the court to apply sanctions for discovery misconduct.  The Court validated the court’s authority to apply a sanction for fees, but limited the amount to determine “only the portion of his fees that we would not have paid but for” the misconduct at issue, and without including amounts designed to punish.
