Attorney general uses power to uphold transparency of homeowners’ associations |

It's about time that an Attorney General did his or her job! (read about Indiana below) The Law in Utah also states that the Attorney General should make sure that corporations are run correctly BUT our Attorney Genral thinks that board members who misuse their power in an HOA consititues a civil matter!

"Don't bother me with your petty problems--I have a golden ring to find!"

Specifically: 16-6a-1609.  Interrogatories by division. 

(a)The division may give interrogatories reasonably necessary to ascertain whether a nonprofit corporation has complied with the provisions of this chapter applicable to the nonprofit corporation
Does this say "civil matter" to you or does teh Attorney General only have time for the big wigs and not the Citizens of Utah?

Attorney general uses power to uphold transparency of homeowners’ associations | Dearborn County Register: "The Indiana Attorney General’s Office has reached a settlement agreement with three former board members of The Harbours Condominiums Association in Jeffersonville, resolving a longstanding dispute that will effect homeowners’ associations throughout Indiana.
The AG filed a lawsuit in 2012 alleging the defendants were using their positions of trust and authority as Harbours board members to make financial deals with association money that promoted their own best interests to the detriment of other association members, without other members’ knowledge or approval.
The Indiana Legislature in 2011 granted the attorney general authority to investigate and take action on allegations of fraud and misappropriation by homeowner’s associations or similar entities.
The legislation was expanded last year to make it easier for homeowners to obtain financial records from associations.
The law also allows for additional penalties in cases of wrongdoing."
