Bar disciplinary authorities in Illinois have accused a former lawyer at Chicago civil rights firm Loevy & Loevy of repeatedly lying about having stomach cancer, starting as an excuse for his results on the LSAT exam and, later, as a purported reason for delaying case deadlines.

The attorney, Vincenzo “Vince” Field, also allegedly made similar claims involving a supposedly ill son or foster son. In fact, bar authorities said, Field never had stomach cancer, nor did he have a son or foster child, let alone one with the same kind of stomach cancer he falsely claimed to have himself.
