Kentucky fen-phen court: "Chesley was paid more than he should have been"



So wrote Boone Circuit Court Senior Judge William Wehr in a motion denying both Stan Chesley's motion to dismiss a suit against him in the Kentucky fen-phen fee scandal. But, with plaintiffs' summary judgment motion also denied, a jury will ultimately decide how much that "more" should be, and whether a fiduciary duty was broken. The same order denied a request by Melbourne Mills to reconsider the finding that a fiduciary duty was broken. Chesley's attorneys state that he will pay back $7 million of his $20 million fee. (Jim Hannah, "Chesley made too much", Cincinnati Enquirer, Apr. 5). Earlier: OL Mar. 26 and links therein. (Cross-posted at Overlawyered.)
