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 (PDF) dated April 2 but entered late Monday, Judge Barbara Major said it was “undisputed” that Qualcomm Inc. improperly withheld tens of thousands of documents from Broadcom Corp. However, she wrote, “the evidence presented during these remand proceedings has established that while significant errors were made by some of the responding attorneys, there is insufficient evidence to prove that any of the responding attorneys engaged in the requisite ‘bad faith’ or that [attorney Kevin] Leung failed to make reasonable inquiry before certifying Qualcomm’s discovery responses.”
