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.

Kremen, who had a double mastectomy after allegedly being misdiagnosed with breast cancer, retained Morelli Ratner, and then sued the firm for legal malpractice, claiming it botched a suit against her doctors. Goodman initially upheld the legal malpractice claim, but was reversed on appeal.
