* In November, Sharon Ryan, a former patient and employee of renowned diet doctor Walter Kempner, filed a lawsuit against him in Durham, N. C., alleging that they had a long-term affair during which he physically and emotionally abused her. Among the accusations was that Kempner spanked Ryan's bare buttocks with a riding crop. In December, Kempner, 91, said he once hit Ryan with a riding crop at her request because she said she needed punishment for failing to stick to the diet he had prescribed.
