In Vt., an attorney general's losses raise doubts
In a small state with big court cases, Vt. attorney general raises doubts with losses
By The Associated Press

MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) ' The performance of Vermont's attorney general is coming under scrutiny after losing three cases with a national profile.

Vermont lost as the office of Attorney General William Sorrell defended campaign finance and drug data mining laws before the U.S. Supreme Court. Last week, a federal judge ruled that the state can't close the Vermont Yankee nuclear plant.

The data mining case is expected to cost the state more than $5 million in legal fees paid to the drug and data mining industries.

Sorrell says his office also has its share of wins and has been recouping more than $40 million a year for the state treasury.
