Federal prosecutors estimate state Sen. Steve Dickerson profited at least $6.5 million from his ownership of a pain clinic company during the same time period the company is accused of defrauding taxpayers out of about $25 million, the Tennessean reports. Dickerson, R-Nashville, an anesthesiologist, is one of the founders of Comprehensive Pain Specialists, or CPS, which was sued by the Department of Justice on Monday. The lawsuit says CPS billed the government for excessive drug testing on a daily basis and company owners looked the other way because they were earning millions.
