“Here, the circuit court failed to make any attempt to segregate the amounts incurred because of the appellants’ sanctionable conduct, namely, the costs incurred defending the Audi penalty claim. … Therefore, the award of sanctions in the full amount of Gebreyessus’ requested attorney’s fees was improper and an abuse of discretion,” Justice Stephen R. McCullough wrote on behalf of the 5-2 majority.
