OPINION AND ORDER: The Court believes monetary sanctions in the form of defense counsel's fees for preparation for and attendance at the conference are appropriate. However, the Court believes that the 17.8 hours that two attorneys billed for preparing the ex parte settlement letter were slightly excessive and, accordingly, finds it appropriate to reduce the amount sought by defense counsel. In its discretion, the Court directs that counsel for plaintiff reimburse Colton and his firm in the amount of $5,000 for the work related to the letter and $1,250 for attendance at the conference for a total of $6,250. In addition, the Court concludes that in evaluating the totality of the circumstances here, a fine is also appropriate. Accordingly, the Court directs that plaintiff's counsel pay a fine of $1,000 to the Clerk of the Court. For all these reasons, the Morelli Law Firm is directed to pay the sum of $6,250 to the Dentons law firm, and to pay $1,000 to the Clerk of the Court. These payments should be made no later than 14 days from the date of this Opinion and Order, and as further set forth in this order. (Signed by Magistrate Judge James L. Cott on 12/7/2017) (ap)
