Marc Dann has first big case since scandal


COLUMBUS (AP) — Ohio’s former embattled attorney general is taking on his first high-profile lawsuit since a sexual harassment scandal forced him to resign from the job in 2008.

Marc Dann today filed a class-action lawsuit against a law firm he says files frivolous foreclosures.

The lawsuit filed in the Cuyahoga County Court of Common Pleas claims the firm — Lerner, Sampson and Rothfuss — doesn’t have the right to file foreclosures and has created incorrect documentation.

Dann and fellow attorney James Douglass are seeking damages for people who have had foreclosure cases brought against them by the firm on behalf of its clients.
