Attorneys, law firms and their clients that were sanctioned by a federal judge for alleged delay of discovery have filed petitions for mandamus with the 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals to have the sanctions overturned.

Summers of Hangley Aronchick Segal & Pudlin, and Sandra A. Girifalco of Stradley Ronon Stevens & Young, on Sept. 28 for deliberate delays of discovery in a case that was filed in 2001.
