NJ Attorney General Sues Post-Sandy Summit Organizer

New Jersey’s attorney general is suing the organizer of an upcoming post-Sandy “reconstruction summit,” alleging he’s violating the state’s Consumer Fraud Act.

Attorney General Jeffrey Chiesa filed a lawsuit Friday against William S. Loiry, claiming Loiry is operating under unregistered business names and engaging in false advertising for an upcoming “Superstorm Sandy Reconstruction Summit” in Trenton.

The suit seeks to stop Loiry from holding the Dec. 17 summit and force him to return any money he’s collected from registrants.

Reached by email, Loiry says the lawsuit “has no merit whatsoever” and he plans to fight it.

The suit claims Loiry has created the false impression his organization and summit is quasi-governmental.

Chiesa says an investigation into Loiry shows 20 legal actions against him, including for similar summits.
