Indiana Attorney General Greg Zoeller is one of three state attorneys general selected to serve on a consumer protection working group aimed at combating financial fraud.

The Financial Fraud Enforcement Task Force, which is chaired by U.S. Attorney Eric Holder, will work across federal law enforcement and regulatory agencies, with state and local partners, to strengthen efforts to address consumer-related fraud. The working group plans to establish a best-practices tool kit, legislative, regulatory and policy initiatives, and an information-sharing structure.

“I am honored to be selected to serve on the Financial Fraud Enforcement Task Force and look forward to working with the federal government, law enforcement and fellow attorneys general,” Zoeller said. “Investigating and prosecuting financial crimes from mortgage scams to tax fraud is critical to protecting all consumers. I look forward to enhancing and developing best practices in the area of consumer protection and sharing these ideas with state and local officials.”

The task force includes representatives from several federal agencies, including the U.S. Secret Service and the FBI, and includes state attorneys general Lisa Madigan from Illinois and Roy Cooper from North Carolina.

  1. A sad end to a prolific gadfly. Indiana has suffered a great loss in the journalistic realm.

  2. Good riddance to this dangerous activist judge

  3. What is the one thing the Hoosier legal status quo hates more than a whistleblower? A lawyer whistleblower taking on the system man to man. That must never be rewarded, must always, always, always be punished, lest the whole rotten tree be felled.

  4. I want to post this to keep this tread alive and hope more of David's former clients might come forward. In my case, this coward of a man represented me from June 2014 for a couple of months before I fired him. I knew something was wrong when he blatantly lied about what he had advised me in my contentious and unfortunate divorce trial. His impact on the proceedings cast a very long shadow and continues to impact me after a lengthy 19 month divorce. I would join a class action suit.

  5. The dispute in LB Indiana regarding lake front property rights is typical of most beach communities along our Great Lakes. Simply put, communication to non owners when visiting the lakefront would be beneficial. The Great Lakes are designated navigational waters (including shorelines). The high-water mark signifies the area one is able to navigate. This means you can walk, run, skip, etc. along the shores. You can't however loiter, camp, sunbath in front of someones property. Informational signs may be helpful to owners and visitors. Our Great Lakes are a treasure that should be enjoyed by all. PS We should all be concerned that the Long Beach, Indiana community is on septic systems.
