U.S. District Judge Cormac J. Carney's surprising rulings in the Broadcom stock options backdating cases didn't come as much of a shock to some lawyers who have argued cases before him.

Bienert Jr. of the San Clemente firm Bienert, Miller & Katzman. "Judge Carney has shown a willingness to take a strong position outside the norm when he believes it's the just thing to do."
