A Manhattan judge has slapped the personal injury firm of Morelli Ratner with $6,000 in sanctions for bringing a "spiteful" and "wasteful" suit against a former client. Supreme Court Justice Emily Jane Goodman's ruling comes three months after she sharply criticized the firm for launching a "nonsensical" action to recover the costs of an unsuccessful medical malpractice action from Victoria Kremen.
