Board recommends disbarring Chesley

CINCINNATI - Attorney Stan Chesley is already facing the loss of his licenses to practice in both Kentucky and Ohio, but now he could lose much more.

Chesley has now been pulled off of a potentially high profile case after a group in Kentucky recommended that he be disbarred. He was lead council for the case against mortgage company Fannie Mae. The class action law suit involves at least 30 million people across the country.

Tuesday, the Kentucky Bar Association's board of governors recommended his disbarment after they decided that Chesley may have lied or withheld information related to a settlement in the Fen-Phen case. Chesley is able to appeal the decision to the Supreme court.

A spokesperson for Mike Dewine's office says Chesley will be pulled from other cases as well.
