Federal and state prosecutors are moving to file lawsuits accusing Sen. Steve Dickerson, R-Nashville, and other owners of a pain management company of defrauding the government, the Tennessean reports. Their company, Comprehensive Pain Specialists (CPS), allegedly profited so much from questionable drug tests that a corporate executive once said urine samples "smelled like money," according to newly unsealed federal court records. Prosecutors revealed in those court records they plan to sue CPS by incorporating allegations from whistleblowers who filed secret complaints against the company. They have not announced plans to pursue charges at this time.
