Pennsylvania Supreme Court Justice Seamus P. McCaffery is the target of an FBI investigation involving referral fees received by his wife, the Philadelphia Inquirer reports .
His wife and chief aide, Lise Rapaport, received 19 referral fees for connecting clients with personal-injury law firms, the Inquirer reported.
One of those fees was for $821,000 after a lawsuit was settled in a medical-malpractice case, the Inquirer wrote.
An attorney for the couple declined there was a federal investigation.
“You’re indulging rumors without any facts,” the attorney, Dion G. Rassias, told the Inquirer.
