IN RE: PENNIE & EDMONDS LLP, 02-7177
Where a sua sponte Rule 11 sanction denies a lawyer the opportunity to withdraw the challenged document pursuant to the "safe harbor" provision of Rule 11(c)(1)(A), the appropriate standard by which to measure the lawyer's liability for the sanction is subjective bad faith. Lawyer sanctions are vacated.
