Six attorneys in the Qualcomm discovery fiasco were sanctioned Monday for "monumental" discovery violations and referred to the State Bar of California for possible discipline. Day Casebeer Madrid & Batchelder attorneys James Batchelder, Adam Bier, Kevin Leung, Christian Mammen and Lee Patch, and Heller Ehrman's Stanley Young were sanctioned and harshly criticized by U.S. Magistrate Judge Barbara Major. The ruling follows a patent infringement trial Qualcomm had brought against Broadcom Corp.
