8 on Your Side uncovered a huge scam before it victimized a local bar and cost the business owner thousands of dollars.More>>
A five-year federal investigation into an alleged conspiracy involving local doctors and lawyers led to a not-so-spontaneous demonstration Wednesday. It happened at the federal courthouse after surgeon Mark Kabins learned of his eight count indictment.
It wasn't exactly civil rights activists fending off attack dogs and fire hoses. The demonstration outside the federal courthouse was theatrical and dramatic, but mostly it was just weird.
A couple of dozen lawyers from firms which have raked in tens of millions of dollars working with assorted medical mafia suspects, including Dr. Kabins, showed up to escort the Las Vegas surgeon after he entered his plea to fraud and conspiracy charges.
When they came out of the courthouse, they formed into sort of a phalanx around the doctor, in part to keep the I-Team away from him. They moved as one, almost like a military unit.
The marching lawyers completely surrounded the low key Dr. Kabins, who did not look like he enjoyed this kind of attention. He sort of looked like a reluctant messiah, surrounded by cult members.
As the Kabins posse moved down the sidewalk, the surly lawyers did their best to look like tough guys -- like hired goons sent to bust up the dockworkers union, except it's hard to look too tough when your nails are manicured and you're wearing $1,000 suits.
The I-Team's Matt Adams was the lone TV cameraman there and took the brunt of the crowd's ire. Mostly, they stuck their heads in front of the lens, used their bodies to box him up against a wall, and did a lot of what lawyers are best know for, whining.
"Your camera is obstructing my head," said one lawyer. When the lens pulled back, the poor lawyer with the obstructed head kept walking straight at the camera while complaining it was in his way.
So who are all the defenders of Lady Justice? We don't know the name of obstructed head man, or another little guy who stuck to us like glue (maybe that was his hair gel). We got pretty good shots of his sideburns and earwax.
A lot of them work for Robert Eglet, whose law firm made millions with Dr. Kabins and alleged medical fixer Howard Awand. Eglet once compared the federal investigation of crooked lawyers to the Nazi extermination of Jews.
One man pointing directions is lawyer John Spilotro, whose family name is well known in the history of the Las Vegas mob. John represented Rocco Lombardo, brother of Chicago mafia boss Joey the Clown.
Another braying victim of our lone cameraman is G. Dallas Horton, personal injury lawyer, who once sued a flower bed for causing a car accident.
Lawyer Denise Ridenhour, on hand for Wednesday's proceedings, works with the firm of Bob Vannah, who bragged on a secret audiotape of making $100 million in one year while working with the other medical mafia suspects.
Kabins' lawyer David Chesnoff, known for his successful defense of mobsters and celebrities, barked at Adams during the confrontation that we were being really unprofessional for being there. So, do they teach this in law school?
At the end of the sidewalk, the crowd stopped, blocking the entrance in both directions as they exited one at a time.
In light of the fact that at least a few of these law firms are also under federal investigation, they might have a chance to do this all over again. Better practice those marching drills.
