Zoeller takes office for secon term as AG

INDIANAPOLIS — Indiana Attorney General Greg Zoeller was sworn in to a second term in office Monday and said his work will continue to build upon relationships and coalitions with other branches and levels of government to ensure that consumers and the public are protected.

Zoeller, a New Albany native, in his inaugural speech said that senior deputy AGs in the Attorney General’s Office will assist legislators, state agencies, courts and law enforcement officials as needed on complex legal issues that arise within state government and the criminal justice system, according to a press release.

“My office will endeavor to serve the three coequal branches of government and build bridges between their separate authorities by convening a coalition of our clients in common purpose,” he said. “Many of our challenges require each of the separate branches to cooperate and support each other’s efforts to address complex issues. We will strive to become a ‘force multiplier’ within government.”

As the lawyer for state government and the state’s top consumer-protection official, Zoeller has focused on enforcing Indiana’s telephone privacy laws, combating frauds and scams against homeowners and senior citizens, initiating civil prosecution against public officials to recover misappropriated public funds, representing the prosecution on appeal and defending state statutes from legal challenges.

The Office of the Indiana Attorney General includes 152 deputy AGs who serve as lawyers for the state. They also take the oath of office again and will do so collectively as a group today at the Statehouse.
