4th Circuit affirms attorney sanctions in payday loan lawsuit

    By Dena Aubin

    A federal appeals court has declined to overturn sanctions
imposed against three attorneys in Kansas City, Missouri and New
York City representing consumers in a payday loan lawsuit,
saying they misled a lower court and unnecessarily extended the
legal proceedings.
    In a decision on Thursday, a three-judge panel of the 4th
U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals affirmed $150,000 in sanctions
against Stephen Six and Austin Moore, both of the Stueve Siegel
Hanson law firm, and Darren Kaplan, principal shareholder of the
Darren Kaplan Law Firm, and the two law firms.
