We've been following this case for years. An intermediate appellate court threw out the verdict against attorneys who stole from the settlement fund based on a later-discredited and -disclaimed affidavit from Ken Feinberg; the Kentucky Supreme Court ruled that that affidavit didn't create a factual dispute, but simply opined on legal issues that the lower court correctly disregarded. Further litigation is still pending against Stan Chesley. The opinion doesn't appear to be online yet. [Courier-Journal; earlier on Point of Law; 2007 summary]
