A federal judge has rebuked a Dorsey & Whitney partner for supposedly trying to circumvent a protective order on documents obtained in discovery. In a sharply worded decision, Judge Harold Baer said he would rule at a later date on a motion to sanction Kristan L. Peters. For now, he advised her to attend a CLE course, "Ethical Bounds of Aggressive Litigation." But Peters said the judge's decision was "riddled with errors" and said she and her firm had done their best to "jump through hoops" set by Baer.
