    The charges against Jim Oliver are absolutely without basis and demonstrate a gross injustice against one of the most ethical and hardworking attorneys with whom I have ever had the pleasure of working with. I have known and worked with Jim since 1987. Whoever has drummed up this case and made these accusations against this man will learn are very hard lesson in the not-to-distant future. Anyone who knows Jim understands exactly what I am talking about. This is a despicable way to treat one of Connecticut's finest attorneys. The people who have made these accusations and those who assisted them should be in jail.

    Given that our current AG dropped a substantial number of Blumy's law suits, I'd say Oliver's charge of abuse of power by the AG's office is accurate.
