Robert L. Abell, a work injury lawyer in Lexington, Kentucky, was quoted in Inside Counsel, a magazine for corporate counsel, regarding the decision by the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit, Brown v. Cassens Transport, which ruled that injured workers fraudulently denied workers compensation benefits can sue under the federal racketeering law, RICO.  The article is titled "Employers Face RICO Claims for Workers Comp Denials" and appears in the February 2009 edition of Inside Counsel.

Robert L. Abell also published an article about the case in the January/February edition of The Advocate, the official publication of the Kentucky Justice Association. See "Injured Workers May Pursue Civil RICO Claim Based On Enterprise To Deny Them Workers' Compensation Benefits."
