DIET DRUG LAWYERS-APPEAL
Judge: Lawyers lack basis for appeal in long-running diet drug case

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Tuesday, April 8, 2014 4:07 AM EDT
LOUISVILLE, Ky.


A federal magistrate judge is recommending that an appeal by two former Kentucky attorneys convicted of scamming more than 400 clients out of $94.6 million from a $200 million settlement over the diet drug fen-phen be rejected.

U.S. Magistrate Judge J. Gregory Wehrman issued an opinion Monday saying 63-year-old William Gallion and 59-year-old Shirley Cunningham either waited too long to present arguments or presented nothing new in their motions for a new trial filed late last year.

Gallion and Cunningham, the original owners of 2007 and 2008 Horse of the Year Curlin, are in federal prison.

Fen-phen was pulled from the market in 1997. Prosecutors say the lawyers illegally kept the bulk of the settlement, but made more money available to clients after the start of a federal criminal investigation.
