People have strong opinions about Stan Chesley, the high-profile, hugely successful plaintiffs’ lawyer — or former plaintiffs’ lawyer, since he recently got disbarred in Kentucky and gave up his law license in Ohio (in a retirement application that was notarized by his wife, federal judge Susan Dlott). Here are some choice comments about Chesley, nicknamed the “Prince of Torts” and “Master of Disaster”:
- “[A]n opportunist and just a nasty son of a bitch.”
- “[W]hat [Chesley] does is evil.”
- “The ultimate grotesque, exaggerated perversion of what it means to be a lawyer.”
- “He has balls as big as brass bells.”
And those bells are still ringing. Stan Chesley might not be back in the courtroom, but he’s back in the headlines in Ohio….
