The State Attorney General Will Not Investigate the Coakley Landfill Group

The state Attorney General’s office says it will not conduct an investigation into the Coakley Landfill Group.

Thomas Donovan, the director of Charitable Trusts for the state Attorney General’s office, determined that the Coakley Landfill Group (CLG) does not meet the state definition of a charitable trust.

“Because the Coakley Landfill Group is not a charitable trust, the CTU (Charitable
Trusts Unit) has no authority to conduct an investigation into its activities,” Donovan wrote in a six-page letter to the group of Seacoast lawmakers who had asked for the investigation.
