Abel v. Austin (Ky. App. 2010)



The Kentucky fen-phen scandal appears to stretch to the Beasley Allen firm in Alabama, which horse-traded for several dozen plaintiffs who thought they were being represented by Kentucky attorneys William Gallion, Shirley A. Cunningham, or Melbourne Mills. The Alabama litigation settled for $47k per plaintiff with "minimal injuries," but the plaintiffs only received $29k. They sued over the other $18k, but we'll never find out what happened to it, because the defendants succeeded in having the claims barred by the statute of limitations. [Abel v. Austin]
