My understanding here, is that the Judge in this case (who is, IMO, seriously prejudiced against the plaintiffs) ordered one of the lawyers (John D. Hemenway, Esquire, Attorney for Plaintiff Gregory S. Hollister) to show 'cause' as to why the Judge should not levy sanctions/fines on the attorney. Hemenway (no doubt with input from Berg), basically hit back at the Judge. As others have stated, the Judge will probably back off on the order to show cause...otherwise he (the Judge) very well may have opened a can of worms he did not intend to open.
Other, more Constitutionally and Judicially scholarly folks might be able to explain it better.
on a side note to this, the plaintiffs plan to appeal the decision.
Quite some time will pass before the order to show cause will be quietly dismissed under the "better use of the Courts resources" excuse.
