The bad AG in West Virginia

The Bluefield paper opines here:

"West Virginia’s Attorney General, Darrell McGraw, continues to evade the issue of why his office decided not to structure a consumer action settlement agreement so that the bulk of $10 million in lawsuit funds would go back to the state agencies for whom he served as legal counsel."

The paper also says:

"Two other key issues are at the heart of this battle – whether or not the Attorney General should follow state bidding procedures for outside attorneys and whether the Legislature has the constitutional authority to direct the use of settlement dollars from consumer protection actions."
