Jepsen to address chamber

Published February 17. 2013 4:00AM

Connecticut Attorney General George Jepsen will address trustees of the Chamber of Commerce of Eastern Connecticut Feb. 28 at the Spa at Norwich Inn.

He will review a number of significant cases, including the lawsuit filed by Connecticut, along with 15 other states and the U.S. Department of Justice, against the Standard & Poor's credit rating agency.

The lawsuit alleges that S&P allowed its analysis to be influenced by the desire to earn lucrative fees from its investment bank clients.

Jepsen will also review for the chamber officials the $120 million settlement in a case involving improper mortgage-related documents. Connecticut will receive $1.8 million in the multi-state settlement.

The chamber trustees will meet at 4:30 p.m. prior to the start of the business group's annual meeting.

No, events in the sky don't interest me much. I'm much more concerned with what's happening here on the ground.
