Sounds good to me.

Attorney sanctions for a non-pro litigants sounds quite reasonable to
> me. Don't you agree, Hyman?

Only if they do it a bunch. Remember that Patry said
    "... it is quite common to permit plaintiffs to amend
     their complaint after they have received a registration."
and surely most of those complaints are filed by lawyers, so it seems
as if this sort of thing is not unusual and therefore should not be
subject to sanctions unless it's repeated after a court said not to
do it.

The SFLC hasn't had to face this yet, since it settles its cases.
