MADISON (AP) - The Wisconsin Supreme Court has revoked the law license of a Milwaukee attorney who admitted to embezzling $2.4 million from a Texas-based client and then losing it all at area casinos.
The court ordered Wednesday that attorney Thomas H. Koch's license be revoked after Koch said he couldn't defend himself from the charges.
In February, Koch was charged with a felony theft charge for allegedly embezzling $2.4 million in settlement claims from a Dallas company called Affiliated Computer Services. That company works with medical insurers to see whether the insured are suing to recover costs for injuries.
According to the criminal complaint, Koch admitted to embezzling the money between 2001 and 2008 and then blowing it on slot machines at the Potawatomi Casino.
