The Arizona Attorney General does not want to spend money to challenge Obamacare, but doesn’t mind paying to hire a Washington, D.C., law firm to chase Pulte Homes.  Pulte Homes sued the Arizona Attorney General.  A story in the Arizona Republic says, “In Pulte’s lawsuit, filed in the U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C., the homebuilder is alleging the outside counsel hired by the Arizona attorney general has ties to the Laborers’ International Union of North America.  The suit says that union has targeted Pulte and other homebuilders with a ‘harassment campaign’ to force the builders’ subcontractors to join the union.”  A spokesperson for the Arizona AG says that the AG is investigating Pulte Homes as a result of complaints related to its home loan business.  Pulte Homes issued this press release about the lawsuit:

The states of Arizona and Nevada have taken the unusual step of outsourcing their investigations to a District of Columbia law firm. The firm, Cohen, Milstein, Sellers & Toll, which holds itself out as a ‘pioneer in plaintiff class-action lawsuits,’ has a conflict of interest because it also represents private parties, including a labor union, in matters adverse to the company (Pulte) and other homebuilders.”
