Release date: 3 July 2013
We are very pleased that the Court has appointed Judge Louis Freeh as Special Master to lead an independent investigation of the Court Supervised Settlement Program. We believe that Judge Freeh's experience on the federal bench and as Director of the FBI make him ideally suited to conduct a thorough investigation into the recent allegations of unethical and potentially criminal behavior within the program. In addition, Judge Freeh has been granted wide latitude to look for "other possible ethical violations or misconduct within the CSSP." Judge Freeh’s investigation of the facility is an essential step in assuring public confidence in the integrity of the claims process.
