Fen-phen, wrapping it up



Concluding arguments in the Kentucky fen-phen trial are set for today in a Covington federal courtroom, the issue being whether three attorneys who won a class-action case ripped off their clients when they took $51 million out of the $200 million settlement.

The Cincinnati Enquirer has a wrap-up story, Fen-phen case nears climax," with all its strange elements: The lawyers buying a race horse, the machinations of Cincinnati class-action guru Stan Chesley - granted immunity - and the pain suffered by the clients. (The Enquirer has published a special section: "Prescription for Scandal" featuring all the coverage so far.)

Meanwhile, Florida A&M Law School defends a $1 million contribution from one of the accused, Shirley Cunningham, endowing a chair for himself. Horsehide?
