DOL sues carpenters, carpenters sue DOL....only the lawyers get rich!

Ethics
The Department of Labor has filed suit against trustees of the New York City District Council of Carpenters pension and benefit funds for allegedly misusing more than $37 million of the more than $1 billion in assets of the carpenters' pension, annuity, vacation and welfare funds.


The Labor Department alleges the trustees violated federal pension law by failing to create leases and collect rent owed to the pension and apprenticeship funds by the council, union locals and other funds; paying two employees without monitoring their work and failing to get receipts for work done for the council at plan expense; and paying the lease and insurance on luxury vehicles and cellular telephones without determining whether they were needed and whether the costs were reasonable.  http://www.pionline.com/article/19960712/ONLINE/607120711/the-department-of-labor-has-filed-suit-against-trustees-of-the-new

Ethics you truly are a moron. You post a case from 1996 and don't mention the date.
