ALBANY — A growing torrent of frivolous litigation sanctions imposed on Albany attorney Andrew F. Capoccia reached flood tide when Albany City Judge Leslie E. Stein awarded sanctions totalling $850,000 in 87 separate, but similar, debt collection cases last week.

In one order, Judge Stein cited sanctions imposed on Mr. Capoccia by judges across the state, and said the penalty was necessary to deter “a pattern of conduct by the Capoccia Law Firm which exhibits a complete disregard for the judicial system, in tying up its limited resources and preventing the system from addressing legitimate disputes, by bombarding it with meritless claims and defenses, apparently as some sort of tactic, the aim of which is to coerce settlement from the adversaries of its clients.”
