Civil suit filed against Eric C. Conn in West Virginia

A civil lawsuit in Mingo County West Virginia takes aim at disabilities lawyer Eric C. Conn for an unspecified amount of damages.

The suit filed yesterday claims Conn performed legal malpractice.

The lawsuit stems from an investigation of Conn's clients who received a benefits suspension notice from the social security administration. A 2013 report by congressional investigators accused Conn of scheming with a West Virginia judge to improperly approve disability cases.

However, Conn's attorney, Kent Wicker, says that an investigation concluded no wrongdoing.
