A federal magistrate has ordered former lawyers for Qualcomm Inc. to appear in court later this month to face possible misconduct sanctions stemming from their roles in a cell phone patent case.

The LA Times reports that U.S. Magistrate Judge Barbara Major has ordered more than a dozen lawyers from Heller Ehrman and from Day, Casebeer, Madrid & Batchelder to appear before her on Aug. 29.

This is part of the continuing fallout from January's Qualcomm patent-infringement loss in San Diego to Broadcom Corp. Qualcomm's general counsel, Lou Lupin, resigned on Monday. U.S. District Judge Rudi Brewster earlier accused Qualcomm of "aggravated litigation abuse."
