Chesley of Waite, Schneider, Bayless & Chesley in Cincinnati has threatened to seek sanctions against plaintiffs' counsel for allegedly falsely accusing him in court pleadings of conspiring with three Kentucky lawyers to misappropriate $126 million of a $200 million Kentucky fen-phen settlement. Chesley insists that he received "not a penny more" than his fee for leading the settlement negotiations on the plaintiffs' behalf.
