Indiana Attorney General Todd Rokita filed a lawsuit against the Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation (BLM) on Thursday. The suit is Rokita's latest move in his investigation of the group's finances and use of donations.

"I filed a lawsuit against the Black Lives Matter organization to protect Hoosiers from this house of cards," Rokita said of the suit on social media. "BLM has concerning patterns of behavior [and] we’ll do what it takes to get to the bottom of it on behalf of generous Hoosiers who have donated to them."

 

The lawsuit demands BLM respond to investigative demands filed in February of this year, Fox News reports.

Black Lives Matter told Fox News it was not aware of Indiana's February request for information until the lawsuit was filed, but that the foundation is now working with counsel to "address the matter immediately."

BLM secretly bought a $6 million mansion – which the group's leaders are said to call "Campus" – and never disclosed it to the public, according to a New York Magazine report.

The purchase of the California house was separate from a 2021 transaction in which BLM reportedly transferred money to a Canadian nonprofit – run by the wife of BLM co-founder Patrisse Cullors – to buy a $3 million house in Toronto.
