HUD Petition

Petition for Rulemaking Under U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development “Community Development Block Grants” Regulations to Prevent Misuse of Federal Funds Through Regulating the Use of Contingency Fee Contracts for Legal Services

Rick J. Lindsey – President, CEO, and Chairman of Prime Insurance Company – respectfully asks that you co-sign a Petition for Rulemaking to HUD.

About The Petition

This petition has been formulated as an effort to bring attention to the state of Mississippi which attempts to relitigate claims from Hurricane Katrina in 2005. The former Attorney General of Mississippi has disrupted the Mississippi insurance market by suing insurers over claims that were resolved over a decade ago, while claiming to recoup HUD block grant funds. Worse, the former Attorney General engaged private attorneys on a contingency fee basis without any formal selection process. Many of those attorneys have been significant donors to his campaigns. Unfortunately, HUD regulations do not prohibit abuse of taxpayer funds or the related cronyism.
