The 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Tuesday affirmed sanctions against Cleary Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton for allegedly trying to convince a non-party witness not to attend a deposition. The circuit's summary order came less than a week after Cleary appeared before the appeals court to argue for the reversal of the sanctions imposed last August by New York federal Judge Loretta Preska. The 2nd Circuit panel found that nothing in the record indicated that Preska had ruled incorrectly.
