Breaking: federal Kentucky fen-phen convictions upheld

| No Comments

The Sixth Circuit has affirmed the convictions of Shirley Cunningham, Jr. and William Gallion, whose rip-off of clients in a mass tort settlement has been the subject of coverage in this blog for years. The opinion's summary of the facts facially demonstrate the ethical violations of everyone involved, and don't even include some of the more appalling conduct, such as the diversion of supposed cy pres to a Florida A&M Chair that paid one of the attorneys. The Sixth Circuit upheld a refusal to admit expert testimony that would have endorsed the propriety of the cy pres.
