Jepsen to address chamber

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.
