In re Hoover, 15-2384

In an ethics action, the district court's order of sanctions under Federal Rule of Bankruptcy Procedure 9011(b)(2) against debtor's attorney, ordering him to enroll in a one-semester class on legal ethics or professional responsibility at an ABA accredited law school, is affirmed where it was not an abuse of discretion to order such a sanction following the attorney's multiple misstatements of the law.
