SALT LAKE CITY -- The former director of the Utah Division of Consumer Protection has filed a complaint against Attorney General John Swallow with the Utah State Bar.
Traci A. Gundersen filed the complaint against Swallow on Friday alleging a violation of attorney-client standards for conversations Swallow had with a business owner her division cited for breaking telemarketing laws.
The Attorney General's Office represents the Division of Consumer Protection.
The Salt Lake Tribune reports the complaint alleges Swallow failed to alert the consumer protection division about the April 2012 conversation with Aaron Vincent Christner, who had been fined $400,000, and possible settlement negotiations that they discussed.
A progressive group filed a separate bar complaint bar earlier this year after Swallow was accused of orchestrating a bribery plan. Swallow denies the accusations.
