From 7News: DENVER — The Colorado Attorney General’s Office is asking a Denver County Court to affirm its desire to keep complaints against a business secret.
The legal action follows CALL7 Investigator Keli Rabon’s requests for complaints against a company called First American Monetary Consultants. She was researching a tip about complaints regarding that company and wanted to see consumer complaints filed with the Attorney General’s Office.
Rabon’s request for the documents was denied, citing Colorado’s Consumer Protection Act. That law gives the Attorney General discretion to release – or not release – consumer complaint information.
The same complaints, however, were freely given by the Attorney General to the Better Business Bureau.
