Cincinnati Mayor Mark Mallory is appointing retired lawyer Stan Chesley to the city's human relations commission. City Council approved the selection today (yesterday) during its regular weekly meeting.
Chesley retired from practicing law after being disbarred in Kentucky for allegedly taking millions of dollars from a judgment involving clients who filed a lawsuit involving the diet drug, phen-fen. Mallory and Chesley have a long history of working together.
This is the announcement from the University of Cincinnati Board of Regents:
Statement by C. Francis Barrett, Chair, University of Cincinnati Board of Trustees: Stanley M. Chesley has resigned from the University of Cincinnati Board of Trustees, effective immediately. Accordingly, the special meeting of the Board of Trustees scheduled for Thursday, April 18, 2013 has been cancelled. The University is appreciative of Mr. Chesley’s many years of service.
