Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Is your pending case in state or federal court?
Good morning. I see that your former expert has opened your question up to others, so I will take it from here. The motion for sanctions is filed in the court in which the action is pending. In your case, if the offending pleadings filed in the Court of Appeals in order to obtain a dismissal of the appeal, then that is where your response and motion for sanctions should be filed. If the documents were filed in the lower court from which you are appealing, then the sanctions motion should be filed in the lower court proceeding.
