Attorney Sanctioned for Motions that 'Lacked Merit'

Loeb & Loeb LLP is noted and Paula Colbath is named in connection with her role as counsel for Universitas Education LLC in a long-running dispute between Universitas and Nova Group, Inc., an employee benefit plan trustee facing a $30.2 million judgment awarded to Universitas. A former Smith Gambrell & Russell lawyer has been ordered to pay attorney fees relating to 10 motions brought on behalf of Nova Group that a magistrate judge said were "so lacking in merit" that their only effect was to extend litigation.
