Man Settles Suit Against Michigan Doctor Who Mistreated Many

January 6, 2016

A man who helped authorities uncover a Detroit, Mich.-area doctor who misled people into believing they had cancer has settled a lawsuit against the doctor for about $1.7 million.

Dr. Farid Fata was paid millions of dollars by insurance companies while poisoning more than 500 people through needless treatments. He was sentenced in July, months after pleading guilty in Detroit federal court, and is appealing his 45-year prison sentence.

Attorney David Haron, who represents ex-Fata employee George Karadsheh in a whistle-blower lawsuit, told the Detroit Free Press an amended complaint was filed last month under seal in the case with allegations against new defendants.

U.S. Attorney’s spokeswoman Gina Balaya says in a statement she’s “not able to confirm nor deny whether we are looking into any new allegations or individuals.”
