In April we were told about thousands of medical files belonging to the former clients of Eric C. Conn found inside his Floyd County law complex in Stanville.
In August U.S. Marshals seized the law complex, locking the doors and boarding up the windows, until a receiver of the files could be appointed. That receiver, appointed two weeks ago, will have the task of reviewing all the files and making sure they get into their owners’ hands.
“I have had some difficult discussions with the receiver,” said Prestonsburg Attorney Ned Pillersdorf who represents many former Conn clients. “And in my view, he does not understand the urgency of getting these people their files in my opinion yesterday.”
Nearly 2,000 former clients of Erc C. Conn have been going through redetermination hearings trying to get back their Social Security benefits. However, many of them are appearing for those hearings without the medical files necessary to prove their disability.

According to Pillersdorf, the clients will not start seeing their files until December, and that could be too late.Read Full Article
