Stanley Chesley ends his legal career

After disbarment in Kentucky, famed plaintiffs lawyer gives up law license in Ohio

Stanley Chesley announced last week that he is no longer a lawyer.

The famed plaintiffs lawyer was disbarred in Kentucky last month after the state’s Supreme Court found him guilty of ethical violations related to a $200 million fen-phen settlement. The court said Chesley cheated his clients out of millions of dollars, took an excessive fee for his work and helped cover up misconduct by other lawyers in an effort to protect the improper payments he was taking.
