Westport Lawyer Gets 8 Months in Insurance Fraud Scheme

A federal judge in New Haven has sentenced a Westport lawyer to eight months in jail as a result of his guilty plea in an insurance fraud scheme.

U.S. District Judge Janet Bond Atherton Wednesday sentenced Bruce J. Corrigan, 58, a personal injury lawyer who has offices at 1853 Post Road East and lives in Fairfield, to eight months in prison followed by two years of supervised release.

She also ordered him to pay a fine of $10,000, as well as make $6,258 restitution to MetLife. The restitution represented the court costs and fee Corrigan took out of an $18,500 settlement he negotiated for an undercover FBI agent.

Corrigan, who pleaded guilty in January, encouraged the agent to obtain a false loss of earnings statement from a friend who ran a landscaping business. (See WestportNow Jan. 4, 2007)

“He’s a virtuoso at orchestrating all the disparate parts and accommodating all the different personalities that come to Westport,” said Andre Dignelli, an internationally known trainer from Heritage Farms in Katonah, N.Y.

The high jumping contest culminates five days of equestrian competition at the private, 34-acre club’s June benefit show, which is open to the public.

Organizing such a sophisticated, large-scale event with 750 horses, more than 100 riders, dozens of corporate sponsors including Chopard and Wachovia, grooms, maintenance people and a 60-man team of groundskeepers is no easy task.
