Lisa Madigan and Loretta King Visit Georgia

We want to thank Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan for giving an outstanding overview of legal issues raised by litigation she has instituted against some of the nation's largest banks. Alleging predatory lending, and illegal steering of blacks and Latinos into sub-prime mortgage, Madigan is attempting to hold banks accountable for irresponsible lending practices that led to the world banking crisis. Madigan was in Atlanta for the Rainbow PUSH Coalition's 10th Annual Creating Opportunity Conference on October 16th.

Also in attendance was Deputy Assistant Attorney General for Civil Rights Loretta King, who detailed her efforts to curb racial profiling, involuntary servitude and voting rights infringement from her post in the U.S. Department of Justice.
