The Kentucky Supreme Court has concluded that a group of 50 Kentuckians waited 15 days too long to file suit against law firms in Mississippi and Alabama as well as a Kentucky lawyer over their handling of a settlement involving the diet drug fen-phen.
The Kentuckians were sent to the Mississippi and Alabama lawyers by three now-disbarred attorneys in a complex deal to help beef up both legal cases over the drugs.
The group sued in 2007 after concluding they received $29,000 each instead of $47,000 each.
