Ohio Lawyer Disbarred in Kentucky for Excessive Fee

Ohio mass tort lawyer Stan Chesley has been disbarred in Kentucky for a fee he took in a case where he had minimal involvement.

Litigation surrounding Fen-Phen resulted in a $200M settlement, with only $46M going to the plaintiffs.  Chelsey’s fee was $20M. Two other lawyers, Shirley Cunningham Jr. and William Gallion, were sentenced in 2009 to up to 25 years in prison in 2009 for illegally taking $94 million in settlement funds.

With increasing regulatory oversight is working with firms to ensure the increasing costs of malpractice allegations and regulatory investigations are reimbursed.
