An attorney general has launched the most aggressive legal action against Black Lives Matter yet.

Indiana Attorney General Todd Rokita filed a lawsuit against activist group 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.”

Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation, the national arm of the Black Lives Matter movement, has come under increasing scrutiny over its handling of the tens of millions of dollars it has received in donations.

The lawsuit demands BLM respond to investigative demands filed in February of this year.
