Tennessee state Sen. Steve Dickerson, R-Nashville, recently settled lawsuits against his company Comprehensive Pain Specialists (CPS). The suits had alleged that Dickerson and Dr. Gilberto Carrero failed to intervene in the company’s scheme to bill for excessive drug testing, and sought to recover $50 million in civil damages. Federal prosecutors alleged that the government was defrauded by at least $25 million by the company. The suits were dropped following the settlement, according to the Tennessean.
