Powell also said it is the court’s responsibility, not her, to investigate the truth of the claims.
The statement, Nessel wrote in a motion on Tuesday, “gets to the heart” of the argument about sanctions against Powell.
Powell “all but admits that she and her co-counsel here performed respectable behavior in front of this court,” Nessel wrote. “… That approach to litigation is correct by any standard.”
