    Default Re: What Does It Mean to File Sanctions on Opposing Attorney

    That depends on the context. If you are in a civil court case, the opposing party or attorney may be sanctioned by the judge for various violations of the rules of civil procedure or court orders. Exactly what the sanctions might be depends on the details of the violation.
