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.
