Feds intend to sue Tennessee lawmaker over pain clinics

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) Federal prosecutors said this week they intend to file a lawsuit against a Tennessee state senator and other co-owners of a now-shuttered pain clinic company.

Court filings said Comprehensive Pain Specialists, which was based in Tennessee and once operated in 12 states, defrauded the government of millions of dollars by submitting claims for unnecessary procedures and falsifying documents.

On Wednesday, U.S. District Judge Aleta Trauger granted federal and state prosecutors' notices of intention to intervene in whistleblower complaints against the company. They have 90 days to file their own complaints.

U.S. attorneys also notified the court that they are adding Tennessee Sen. Steve Dickerson, among other defendants. The Nashville Republican and anesthesiologist declined to comment on Thursday.

Apparently this GOP state senator doesn't have any issues with Medicare...or Medicare fraud.
