ANTI-KICKBACK

Ex-CEO of HDL Settles Bankruptcy Claims for $10 Million

Case: Health Diagnostic Laboratory co-founder and former CEO Tonya Mallory has agreed to pay $10 million to settle claims brought by the bankruptcy trustee in charge of liquidating HDL’s assets. The case against Mallory is part of the trustee’s larger $600 million suit targeting more than 100 HDL executives, directors, contractors and other defendants associated with the testing firm driven to bankruptcy by a massive kickback scheme involving bribes to physicians in exchange for orders of blood tests.

Significance: The newly approved bankruptcy settlement, which also covers her husband and former HDL shareholder, Scott, is far from the end of Ms. Mallory’s legal problems. Last May, a federal court in South Carolina ordered Mallory and two principles of HDL’s former contract sales organization, BlueWave Healthcare Consultants, to shell out $114.1 million after a jury found the three defendants liable for Medicare fraud for their part in the HDL scam. (See GCA, June 21, 2018, Case of the Month.) The defendants are appealing the verdict.
