A federal judge has ordered an attorney to pay more than $30,000 in sanctions after confidential documents the lawyer turned over to a client ended up fueling a third party’s legal action.

Southern District Judge Shira A. Scheindlin ordered Manhattan attorney Daniel S. Brecher and his former client Paul Lewicki to each pay $33,780 to Enzo Biochem after Lawrence Glaser obtained documents that had been under Judge Scheindlin’s protective order and used the documents to support a motion to reconsider a closed case filed by Mr. Glaser against Enzo Biochem in Virginia federal court. Enzo Biochem is a bio-tech company based in New York.
