A Manhattan law firm committed a "veritable 'perfect storm' of mistakes, errors, misdeeds and improper litigation practices" in trying to collect a debt from a woman, a New York state judge has ruled in ordering sanctions against the firm. Eltman, Eltman & Cooper was ordered to pay $14,800 for a series of ethics rules violations, including "disobeying" a court order dismissing the case by making "harassing" phone calls to the defendant. A firm spokesman said that an appeal is under consideration.
