The sanctions in the Qualcomm discovery scandal that helped destroy Day Casebeer Madrid & Batchelder, as well as the careers of several lawyers, have been lifted. In an order entered late Monday, Federal Magistrate Judge Barbara Major said it was "undisputed" that Qualcomm improperly withheld tens of thousands of documents from Broadcom. However, she wrote, "there is insufficient evidence to prove that any of the responding attorneys engaged in the requisite 'bad faith.'"
