Lawyer, client may face fines for memo laced with slurs about 'dirty Catholics' in courtroom

A lawyer and her client might each be paying $10,000 after reportedly filing a memo saying the court was "composed of a bunch of ignoramus, bigoted Catholic beasts." The Pioneer Press says the client wrote the filing, and her attorney signed it. When the paper requested an interview with the client, she apparently replied asking whether the paper "was owned by the Catholic Church or just a majority stockholder."
