State insurance fraud investigators sue, say fired for pursuing case

Idaho Statesman reporter Cynthia Sewell reports today that four former investigators for the Idaho Department of Insurance have filed a federal lawsuit, claiming they were fired or forced out of their jobs for pursuing - and alerting federal authorities to - a fraud investigation into an eastern Idaho insurance company. The investigation led to a joint federal-state raid, involving the state department, the FBI and the Internal Revenue Service, on the company's offices and homes in Idaho Falls and Rexburg on Oct. 19.
