Quackenbush told prosecutors that Kabins' testimony was critical to the case.

Gage and Kabins were accused of belonging to a network of doctors and lawyers who conspired to boost medical costs and inflate legal settlements, sharing the profits.

The government refused to offer immunity to Kabins because it had yet to decide whether to file charges against him.
