By FindLaw Staff on August 03, 2009 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

In an appeal from a Fed. R. Civ. P. 11 sanction issued against plaintiff's attorney, the order is vacated where: 1) there is no basis in the text of Rule 11(b)(3) for the legal proposition that an attorney must separately identify "fact" and "inference" in court papers; and 2) the "factual contentions" in plaintiff's pleadings had "evidentiary support."
