According to the AG, his office has broken the storm and delivered the goods since ushered in office including dealing with over $70 million judgement debts.

We put our apts together – the Civil Division registered one victory after the other from the PDS action, which we won around June or July to the action against the Attorney General and the many other judgment debts which we avoided, we counted our victories as the year rode on.
