Cuccinelli: I’ll File Lawsuit Against Health Care Bill Right After It’s Signed
VA Attorney General Cuccinelli files suit against firm to stop “false promises”
November 12th, 2010
For once, Virginia Attorney General (AG) Ken Cuccinelli seems to be using his office to protect the public interest and not an ideological agenda.
Last week, Cuccinelli’s office filed a lawsuit in Chesapeake Circuit Court against the American Neighborhood Housing Foundation.
Officials with the state contend that some companies are promising anxious homeowners that it can stop their mortgage foreclosures. State officials argue in particular that the American Neighborhood Housing Foundation violates Virginia’s consumer-protection laws.
Cuccinelli has said in the suit that the basis for the lawsuit rests on improperly collected advance fees, fees that are collected before the services have been performed. The AG also claims that the firm “made false promises.”
The next step the AG should take is to halt all foreclosures in Virginia altogether if he has the power to do so.
Virginian’s put out on the streets don’t add much to our economy and morally, it’s just the right thing to do.
Perhaps we’ve lost our moral bearings and if so, now is the perfect time to begin steering in the right direction again.
Besides, what better way to win over a lot of desperate voters.
