Ladies & Gentlemen, ze AG gives you ze....
- The Superior Court record shows a scheduled Status Conference for 10/20/2015. Please clarify whether this will take place and what it pertains to.
- Are judgments granted against Camelback Consign & Design applicable to both managerial members of Camelback Consign & Design LLC, Mike Burns and Justin Burns, or only Mike Burns? I see that your letter references "defendants."
- How are judgments enforced or applied? For example, does the state publish a lien against the party or parties subject to the judgment?
- Could I get a copy of the pertinent court orders regarding restitution and civil penalties?
- Has the AG's office made any effort to locate items that were either sold and for which proper compensation - per the contract - was not provided?
- Has the AG's office attempted to identify the whereabouts of items that were turned over to Camelback Consign & Design, but not reported sold?
- Is the AG's office able to compel delivery of records and testimony regarding the whereabouts of such items? Is it able to compel payment from other sources of income that the party or parties subject to the judgments and civil penalties may have?
- Can the AG's office inform me what actually happened with monies not paid and items "converted?"
- When do the judgments and civil penalties obtained expire?
- How are they renewed?
- How frequently can I expect the AG's office to provide updated information regarding the status of collections and restitution from the party or parties subject to the judgments and civil penalties?
- Should the AG's office actually collect funds toward restitution, how are those funds distributed to the injured parties?
- Are records of this judgment or notice of any sort regarding the case and its resolution turned over to any other applicable authorities for review? In particular, I am thinking of the IRS. However, there may be other entities with an interest in the outcome of this matter of which I am unaware.
Ms. Meislik failed to respond, at all, to questions 1-2, 6-10, and 13. The answer to question three was utterly obligue, and an excellent example of an answer as a non-answer: the State collects the money on its judgment through the means permitted under Arizona’s collection laws. (Isn't this why America watches The Good Wife? To understand what real-life attornies refuse to tell us?)
I remain perplexed. How exactly did the Consumer Protection & Advocacy Section of the Office of the Arizona Attorney General fulfill its mandate to protect the public against financial predators, in this case, so carefully documented in this blog?
And how much are the citizens of Arizona paying for these and similar services rendered by the Office of the Attorney General?
Are we getting our money's worth? Are we well-served?
Does anyone in the state legislature care that our chief legal representative against financial fraud - the Office of the Arizona Attorney General - does little more than it absolutely must to fulfill its mandate?
