HOUSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--A Houston district court judge yesterday dismissed a malicious prosecution lawsuit filed by George Fleming and the law firm Fleming and Associates, LLP against well-regarded boutique litigation firm Ware, Jackson, Lee & Chambers, LLP and attorneys Don Jackson and Jeff Chambers.
Ware, Jackson, Lee & Chambers is currently pursuing a lawsuit on behalf of approximately 600 former fen-phen clients of Fleming. That lawsuit alleges that Fleming deducted millions of dollars in screening costs from WJLC’s clients' fen-phen settlements for other people that Fleming screened and rejected as clients.
Fleming sued the firm and the attorneys, alleging that they caused the U.S. Attorney’s office, the State Bar of Texas, and the Harris County District Attorney to investigate Fleming.
“Fleming's lawsuit against our firm, and us personally, was baseless,” said Chambers. “We are pleased that the court dismissed it.”
Judge Wesley Ward noted in his order that he will later rule on attorneys' fees and sanctions regarding the dismissed case.
Ware, Jackson, Lee & Chambers, LLP, was represented by Billy Shepherd and Allison Standish Miller, who filed the motion to dismiss on behalf of the firm.
