Since you apparently have a new lawyer, you should express your concern about getting fined or being in trouble to him or her. Judges' attitudes on discovery abuse vary widely and your lawyer would be the best authority on exactly what happened in your case and what your judge is likely to do about it.
I'm afraid I don't understand what you mean by "he was awarded an attorney through the courts," so I am unable to address your question about that. Again, since you have a lawyer, you should ask him or her this question.
Discuss this in person or on the phone with your new attorney who you are paying to represent you in this matter.
