State Senator Marilyn Moore Releases Statement Following Attorney General’s Decision not to Investigate Bridgeport Church Foreclosure

Today, state Senator Marilyn Moore (D-Bridgeport) is releasing a statement following the decision made by Attorney General William Tong to not investigate the Cathedral of Holy Spirit.

“The Bridgeport Delegation has done all that we can to give access to the Attorney General and the Commissioner of Banking,” said Sen. Moore. “Our concern was to ensure the lender didn’t have a misstep that could have contributed to the cycle of foreclosure. I am satisfied with Attorney General Tong’s decision and now the case is left in the hands of the court system.”

On September 23, The Bridgeport Delegation including state Senators Marilyn Moore and Dennis Bradley, Representatives Andre Baker, Jr., Antonio Felipe, Jack Hennessy, Christopher Rosario, Steve Stafstrom, and Charlie Stallworth wrote a letter to Attorney General William Tong asking him to investigate predatory lending that took place at the Cathedral of the Holy Spirit.

Following the letter, Senator Moore spoke with Attorney General Tong on the phone at great length and discussed the case. Attorney General Tong explained there was nothing that violated Connecticut Laws and there was nothing he could pursue further.
