Bone McAllester Norton attorneys Edward M. Yarbrough and Alex Little are slated as presenters at the Tennessee Alliance for Legal Services’ (TALS) Winter Meeting. Their presentation, “Healthcare Fraud and Introducing Misbranded Cancer Drugs into Interstate Commerce” will review the case history of a federal criminal prosecution in East Tennessee. The defendants, an oncologist and his wife who served as the practice manager for his clinic, were indicted for multiple counts of healthcare fraud and introducing misbranded cancer drugs into interstate commerce.
In the presentation, Ed and Alex will discuss the initial investigation by the Food and Drug Administration agent and the Federal Bureau of Investigation agent, as well as the motion to suppress all evidence seized by the agents, other pretrial motions and the trial itself. They will address how they were able to have the convictions vacated and the cases remanded to trial court for dismissal with prejudice.
Ed and Alex are members of the firm’s Criminal Defense and Government Investigations practice. Ed has been a successful trial lawyer in Nashville for more than 40 years and is a former U.S. Attorney. Alex is a former federal prosecutor and served as Assistant U.S. Attorney for the Middle District of Tennessee.
The TALS Winter Meeting will be held Saturday, Feb. 21, at the Holiday Inn Opryland Airport Hotel. CLE credit is available.
