LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - A Kentucky Bar Association official says the agency is reviewing accusations that an eastern Kentucky disability lawyer collaborated with a former West Virginia judge to improperly award disability benefits to hundreds of applicants.

Thomas Glover, chief bar counsel, told the Lexington Herald-Leader that the agency is "looking at" the allegations against Eric C. Conn, and they could affect his license if proven true. Conn has an office in Stanville, near the West Virginia border.

The accusations against him were in a report released Monday by congressional investigators. It accused Conn of scheming with retired administrative law Judge David B. Daugherty to approve more than 1,800 disability cases from 2006 to 2010.

Conn declined to answer questions during a Senate hearing, asserting his constitutional right against self-incrimination. Daugherty left the hearing before being called to testify.
