What can I say folks but ROTFLMAO!!!!!!! Hot off the presses from the legal jackassery department over at the Super 8 Motel on Clearview:
Moreover, the Webbs’ attorney, Daniel G. Abel, has repeatedly engaged in sanctionable conduct before this court. In Chisei v. Auto Club Family Ins. Co., 374 F. App’x 475, 477 (5th Cir. 2010), a panel of this court awarded sanctions against Mr. Abel’s client because Mr. Abel’s briefs were “wholly without merit,” “fail[ed] to fairly address the substance of the district court’s findings,” and “demonstrate[d] a pointed disrespect for ‘the limited resources of the judicial system.’” (quoting Stearman v. Comm’r, 436 F.3d 533, 540 (5th Cir. 2006)). In Martin v. Magee, No. 12-30263, 2012 WL 6644228, at *2 (5th Cir. Dec. 12, 2012), another panel of this court imposed $3,000 in sanctions against Mr. Abel, after finding that his briefing “indentifie[d] no legal error and raise[d] no significant, appealable issue.” Mr. Abel’s actions in this case continue what the Martin panel correctly described as “a continued pattern of filing frivolous, vexatious appeals that waste judicial resources.” Id.
Because the instant appeal is frivolous, vexatious, and wastes judicial resources and because Mr. Abel has repeatedly abused the appellate process, we GRANT the motion for sanctions and impose sanctions against Mr. Abel in the amount of the reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs incurred by Morella in connection with this appeal. We REMAND to the district court for determination of reasonable fees and costs.
Now for some lovely music.
