Suits Against Attorney Dismissed

A federal judge has thrown out two lawsuits that alleged class-action lawyer Stan Chesley, his Cincinnati law firm and one of its lawyers mishandled a multimillion-dollar sex-abuse settlement with the Covington Diocese. U.S. District Judge Danny Reeves cited a well-established legal doctrine in Monday's order that states federal judges generally don't have the authority to review state court decisions.
