An affiliate of Planned Parenthood of Northern New England will pay $30,000 to the state of Vermont to settle a claim by the attorney general's office that it violated the state's campaign finance laws in 2010.
The state of Vermont has settled two “cramming” lawsuits that will refund more than $900,000 to 12,500 Vermont consumers. Vermont’s Attorney General talks about the settlement and a multi-state effort to curb the third-party billing practice.
The Vermont attorney general's office will hold a public forum next week to evaluate police use of stun guns.
The forum — to be held next Monday in Montpelier — will include a panel made up of two lawmakers, the heads of the Vermont American Civil Liberties Union and Disability Rights Vermont and Vermont Attorney General Bill Sorrell. Members of the public will also be invited to provide comments.
Several presentations will be given on the current training and policies on the use of stun guns and the risk and benefits of using them.
