One of three lawyers accused of plundering Kentucky’s $200 million fen-phen settlement said he and his colleagues “tore up or burned” notes showing how much they paid themselves and their clients.

Depositions obtained by The Courier-Journal include Lexington attorney Melbourne Mills Jr.’s description of a meeting that he said he and lawyers William Gallion and Shirley Cunningham Jr., also of Lexington, held at Gallion’s house in 2001 to divvy up an extra $10 million beyond what they’d already paid themselves from the settlement.
