The suit is in relation to malpractice as well as their involvement in the Kenneth Starr Ponzi scheme. Kenneth Starr, who has pleaded guilty to felony charges related to the scheme, is also named as a defendant in the suit.

David S. Stone, managing partner of Stone & Magnanini LLP, is representing the Wiatts.
''The facts alleged in the complaint demonstrate that Starr and Bristol took advantage of the close relationships they had forged with the Wiatts to the latter's financial and personal detriment,'' said Stone. ''This type of conduct warrants not only compensatory, but punitive damages to deter such conduct in the future.''
