ATTORNEY ERIC CONN AND SOCIAL SECURITY HEARING OFFICER DAVID DAUGHERTY SUED OVER HANDLING OF AWARDS

“This is an action to recover fraudulently obtained disability benefits and
attorneys’ fees paid by the United States of America to Eric C. Conn and Eric Conn, P.S.C. (collectively “Conn”). The disability benefits and attorneys’ fees obtained by Conn
which are the subject of this qui tam all originate from a fraudulent scheme coordinated
between Conn and a social security administrative law judge named David B. Daugherty
(“Daugherty”). The fraudulent scheme involved Daugherty wrongfully taking control of
a high number of Conn’s clients’ Social Security disability claims from randomly assigned
administrative law judges and conducting sham proceedings, resulting in the Conn
clients overwhelmingly and fraudulently obtaining successful results.”
