LEXINGTON, Ky. (WSAZ) – Eric Conn, the lawyer dubbed Mr. Social Security, was back in court Friday.

Conn was fined $1,000 for his failure to comply with prior court orders to answer the question whether he has malpractice insurance.

Last year, we first told you about the indictments of Conn, retired administrative law Judge David Daugherty, and Dr. Alfred Bradley Adkins. All are accused of fraudulently getting millions from Social Security claims.

There will be another hearing at 1 p.m. Sept. 2 on a motion to certify the case as a class action. Anyone affected is welcome to attend.
