Mayor appoints Chesley to city commission

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.  

Most recently Chesley has helped to raise private donations to fund the city's swimming pools.  Mallory also wrote a letter supporting Chesley when he was being asked to resign from the University of Cincinnati's Board of Trustees.  The lawyer did leave that post earlier this year.
