Morgan Drexen Endorses “Open Letter To Washington” Requesting Government Surveillance Reform.

Company calls this unity of technology companies historic.

COSTA MESA, Calif., December 9, 2013. Morgan Drexen Integrated Systems today gave its endorsement to the “Open Letter to Washington” asking for a reform to government surveillance.

In what is being called an historic unity among competing companies, industry giants such as Google, Apple, Facebook, Twitter, AOL, Microsoft, Yahoo and Linkedin have formed an unprecedented alliance requesting major government surveillance reform.

“What we have here today is the largest corporate alliance in recent history all asking the government to reform their surveillance of American citizens worldwide,” said Walter Ledda, CEO of Morgan Drexen Integrated Systems “Clearly, not only are the people of this country making a stand against government intrusion of personal information, but so are many of the largest technology companies in the world.”

The open letter to President Obama and to Congress specifically asks for major government surveillance reform in 5 key areas, including the placement of governmental limits of user information, oversight and accountability, transparency of governmental demands, respecting the free flow of information, and the avoidance of conflicts among governments.

“Morgan Drexen is itself a powerful technology company,” added Ledda, “and we have a very strong stance against any governmental action that violates the privacy rights of Americans. What strikes us as particularly important in the Open Letter is that our company has the same belief in the right to privacy enshrined in our Constitution, a right that we are currently fighting for in a suit against the CFPB.

In July, Morgan Drexen and Connecticut attorney Kimberly Pisinski filed suit against the CFPB accusing the Bureau of grossly overreaching its authority when it demanded Pisinski’s law firm hand over privileged and confidential communications as well as the personal financial records of thousands of consumers who either has or are considering filing for bankruptcy. The demand by the CFPB included names, addresses, phone numbers, an amount of debt, income and income sources, and additional creditor information from such sources as bank loans, medical service providers, utilities, rent and even child support.

Morgan Drexen Applauds Legislative Committee’s Moves to Control Actions by the CFPB

Move to protect the privacy of Americans continues to gain strength.

(COSTA MESA, CA), November 26, 2013. Morgan Drexen’s legal battle against the CFPB appears to have received support by the powerful House Financial Services Committee last week when the Committee approved six measures that will make the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau more accountable and transparent. Perhaps the most significant of these House Resolutions is H.R. 2571 introduced by Wisconsin Representative Sean Duffy, which prohibits the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau from collecting personal financial information about consumers without their knowledge or consent.

“This is an extremely important move to protect the privacy of every American,” said Morgan Drexen CEO Walter Ledda. “Representative Duffy believes what many Americans believe – that we have a right to privacy in our financial lives.”
In July, Morgan Drexen and Connecticut Attorney Kimberly Pisinski filed suit against the CFPB accusing the Bureau of grossly overreaching its authority when it demanded Pisinski’s law firm hand over privileged and confidential communications as well as the personal financial records of thousands of consumers who either have or are considering filing for bankruptcy. The demand by the CFPB included names, addresses, phone numbers, amount of debt, income and income sources, and additional creditor information from such sources as bank loans, medical service providers, utilities, rent and even child support – information protected by the attorney-client privilege.
“It’s important for legislators to stand up to the oath they took when taking office, the oath that protects the constitutional rights which make up our nation’s freedoms” added Ledda. “In America, “Data Mining” for personal information is equivalent to assuming that a person may be guilty of something even before there is a shred of reasonable evidence and it should be stopped.”
House Representative Duffy’s resolution is part of 5 additional resolutions including Resolutions 2446, 3519, 2385, 3193, and 3183, all of which are directed towards making the CFPB more transparent and accountable. The resolutions still have to pass the full House vote as well as a full Senate vote.

Summer of Discontent for CFPB and NSA

Read Full Blog: Summer of Discontent for CFPB and NSA.

It’s been a long, sweaty summer for the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and the National Security Agency, two groups entrusted with protecting Americans. It seems recent revelations about what these agencies are really up to have left many citizens feeling a skosh more violated than protected.

The CFPB is facing a major lawsuit challenging its data mining efforts – not to mention the very constitutionality of the agency itself. The CFPB, which essentially answers to no one and writes its own rules, is being sued by Connecticut attorney Kimberly Pisinski and Morgan Drexen Integrated Systems, a provider of back-office administrative support services to businesses and attorneys, such as Pisinski. Among other concerns, the complaint accuses the CFPB of attempting to seize the private bankruptcy documents of thousands of struggling American consumers. According to a recent court filing by Pisinski and Morgan Drexen. Read More…
