CHICAGO – The nationwide coronavirus testing chain under scrutiny from the FBI and several states was hit with a scathing lawsuit Thursday – one that provides new insight into alleged deceptive trade practices and garish spending by company executives.Oregon Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum sued Illinois-based Center for Covid Control and its primary lab, Doctors Clinical Lab, for “deceptively marketing testing services” and violating the state’s Unlawful Trade Practices Act.The lawsuit alleges Illinois residents Aleya Siyaj and Akbar Ali Syed, the married couple who founded Center for COVID Control, “funnelled millions of dollars received from the federal government and insurance companies for testing to themselves,” according to the Oregon attorney general’s office.The lab has been reimbursed more than $153 million through the U.S. Health Resources and Services Administration’s COVID-19 Uninsured Program, public data shows.
