CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

Local attorney Stan Chesley has resigned from the University of Cincinnati Board of Trustees, according to school officials.

Chesley's resignation comes after he was disbarred last month in Kentucky over his actions and decisions in a settlement involving the diet drug fen-phen.

The UC Board of Trustees wrote a letter to Chesley on April 12, asking for his voluntary resignation from the board in order to "preserve the integrity of the University."

Seven fellow trustees signed the letter, excluding Geraldine "Ginger" Warner, citing Chesley's "disregard" of the University's code of conduct.

The Board gave Chesley until 5 p.m. on Monday to resign. When he did not submit a letter of resignation by that time, a special meeting was planned to consider a formal resolution regarding Chesley's continued service on the board.

Following Chesley's resignation on Wednesday, a statement was sent from Greg Hand, UC's Director of Public Relations, which reads in part:

'Stanley M. Chesley has resigned from the University of Cincinnati Board of Trustees, effective immediately. Accordingly, the special meeting of the Board of Trustees scheduled for Thursday, April 18, 2013 has been canceled. The University is appreciative of Mr. Chesley's many years of service.'
