An Indiana Court of Appeals decision on rules surrounding gender changes in legal documents could make transitioning more private – and arguably much safer – for transgender Hoosiers.

The Indiana Attorney General’s office has filed suit against three out-of-state companies accused of scamming tax delinquent property owners out of money and their homes.

Investigators say they noticed a pattern that revealed at least 48 property owners, mostly in Marion County, have been swindled.

Attorney General Greg Zoeller filed a lawsuit Monday, alleging the companies are taking advantage of property owners who are late on their tax payments and don’t understand the tax sale process.

Indiana Legal Services, or ILS, provides legal aid for Hoosiers in all 92 counties. Tuesday, Attorney General Greg Zoeller announced a new grant aimed at supporting their foreclosure prevention services for low-income residents. The grant will also be used to fund a partnership between Indiana law schools and ILS.

Attorney General Greg Zoeller says this grant will help residents who need legal aid during the foreclosure process.
