CINCINNATI (AP) — The University of Cincinnati board of trustees has scheduled a special meeting Thursday on its call for prominent class-action attorney Stanley Chesley to resign after his disbarment in Kentucky.
Trustees last week gave Chesley until the end of the day Monday to resign from the board, citing Kentucky Supreme Court findings of unethical conduct. The Kentucky court ordered Chesley disbarred in March for his actions in the settlement of a $200 million lawsuit involving the makers of the diet drug fen-phen.
The board had warned earlier that Chesley's failure to voluntarily step down would lead to further action.
A message for comment was left Wednesday for the Cincinnati attorney.
Chesley has been a pioneer in class-action lawsuits, and was dubbed the "Master of Disaster" in the legal community.
