Fen-Phen Retrial Will Take Place In Frankfort

The re-trial of two lawyers, charged in connection with a diet drug lawsuit settlement, will be moved to central Kentucky.

Shirley Cunningham, Junior and William Gallion are accused of taking millions of dollars from their clients after they won a class action lawsuit involving Fen-Phen.

A northern Kentucky jury acquitted a third lawyer, Melbourne Mills, but couldn't reach a decision for the other two, resulting in a mistrial.

The Herald Leader now reports U.S. Judge Danny Reeves will oversee the second trial in Frankfort.
