Conflicting NCUA Opinions Filed by Both Sides in St. Helens Recall Suit
Seemingly conflicting NCUA opinions regarding the basis of a member’s lawsuit against the $161 million St. Helens Community FCU of St. Helen, Ore., are working their way into court, despite the regulator’s attempts to stay out of the conflict.
NCUA Public Affairs Specialist John Fairbanks said the agency is not taking any sides on the case, saying, “This is a matter before the court and we will wait to see what the judge decides.”
Knebel said he never received the email, a claim he backed up in court Wednesday when he filed a motion to respond to the document and attached an email from Region V Director of Supervision Kimberly Twieg, who said the email was incorrectly addressed.
Also at issue in the case is the matter of jurisdiction.
