Our Attorney General in action...

Photo shows Massachusetts Attorney General Tom Reilly speaking to reporters in Washington, DC, about the first global warming case heard by the US Supreme Court. Twelve states and 13 environmental groups are charging the federal Environmental Protection Agency with inaction.

Attorney General Reilly has also been active in seeking compensation for faulty work by Big Dig contractors. He will be leaving office in January. His successor, Martha Coakley, is also likely to be an activist Attorney General.
