$9.5 million in IRS liens on Cincinnati residences of disgraced "super lawyer" Stan Chesley and his wife, federal judge Susan Dlott

Via Fen-phen case draws Stan Chesley even deeper into web of lawsuits by investigative reporter James Pilcher, Cincinnati Enquirer, December 27, 2016:
The IRS filed personal income tax liens on his Indian Hill home and another condo downtown for a total of nearly $9.5 million, according to filings with the Hamilton County Recorder’s office.

Earlier this month, Chesley and his wife, U.S. District Court Judge Susan Dlott, put the 21,000-foot Indian Hill home up for sale for $8 million, which would make it one of the most expensive houses in Hamilton County history.
Via the Recorder's office:

As I reported a few years ago, in 2004 on behalf of my family Chesley sent two proffer letters to my wife Karen and me which -- based on our previous (and subsequent) interactions with him -- we interpreted as an attempt to arrange a deal to try and stop us from exposing my father as a dangerous charlatan.

We didn't respond.
