Barry Coburn, a name partner at Coburn & Coffman representing juice maker POM Wonderful in at least two cases, has been ordered to show cause as to why he shouldn’t be sanctioned for allegedly making false representations to a D.C. Superior Court judge.

Judge Judith Bartnoff, who is presiding over a breach of contract suit filed against POM by Hogan Lovells, said in an order handed down on Oct. 6 that Coburn and POM misrepresented the confidential status of an ongoing Federal Trade Commission investigation into medical claims made by POM in advertising and marketing materials.
