April Gallop Dodges Fine, Lawyers' Fines Doubled

Well, here's a decision right out of Solomon:
(1) The motion of Dennis Cunningham, Gallop’s lead counsel of record, for admission to our Court pro hac vice, is hereby GRANTED. (2) Gallop is hereby ADMONISHED that the submission of future frivolous filings may result in sanctions. (3) Dennis Cunningham, Mustapha Ndanusa, and William Veale are hereby ORDERED to pay the government double costs in addition to damages in the amount of $15,000, for which they are jointly and severally liable, within 60 days of the date of entry of this order.
I suspect the obvious, which is that the court concluded that April was led astray by her idiot lawyers. Hat tip: The lovely and talented Orphia Nay at JREF.
