Prominent personal injury attorney Stanley M. 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.
More than 400 former fen-phen plaintiffs seek a disgorgement of the money from Chesley; Shirley A. Cunningham Jr. of the Cunningham & Grundy Law Group and William J. Gallion, both of Lexington, Ky.; and Melbourne Mills Jr. of the Law Offices of Melbourne Mills Jr. in Versailles, Ky., relating to the $200 million settlement they obtained in the fen-phen litigation. Abbott v. Chesley, No. 05-CI-00436 (Boone Co., Ky., Cir. Ct.)
