44-5-103, MCA

Montana State Fund v. Simms [12/29/10] 2010 MTWCC 41 Section 39-71-211(1), MCA, provides that State Fund shall establish a fraud unit.  In 1993, the fraud unit was designated as being a “criminal justice agency” as defined in § 44-5-103(7)(b), MCA, pursuant to Executive Order.  Although State Fund maintains that only “an exceedingly small part” of the unit’s activities deal with criminal investigations, this does not somehow negate the designation of the Fraud Group as a criminal justice agency.
