This is one of six appeals consolidated for this Courts review of the Commonwealth Courts order assessing costs and attorneys fees against appellant for the filing of a frivolous appeal. Having previously determined that the Commonwealth Court has the power to issue such an order, Smith v. Board of Probation and Parole, 524 Pa. 500, 574 A.2d 558 (1990), we now consider whether the Commonwealth Court erred in sanctioning counsel for filing a frivolous appeal where the appeal was untimely filed in that court, and where counsel was appointed after the time for appeal had expired but failed to offer any justification for the delay. For the reasons that follow, we affirm the order of the Commonwealth Court. 119 Pa. Commw. 513, 547 A.2d 838.
