Kentucky Fen-Phen Attorneys
- In the mid-90's, millions of Americans looking to lose weight line up for the newest wonder drug…Fen-Phen. But, it's not long before patients realize that this "miracle drug" is no miracle. Scientists link the drug to heart disease and a rare but fatal condition called Primary Pulmonary Hypertension.
- The Lawsuits
- Across the country there are thousands of lawsuits seeking damages for people whose health has been ruined by Fen-Phen. In Kentucky, three lawyers decide to join forces to see if they can get in on the action with a suit of their own.
- The Settlement
- Lawyers William Gallion, Shirley Cunningham Jr. and Melbourne Mills Jr. sign up 440 patients and represent them in a class action lawsuit. The attorneys negotiate a $200 million settlement. Clients begin to receive checks... but the numbers don't add up.
- The Scam
- Patients receive less than their agreed on share. The attorneys are pocketing millions of dollars. Gallion, Cunningham and Mills go on a spending spree… buying sports cars, thoroughbred horses and expensive homes. But their luck is about to run out!
