Maine Attorney General Steven Rowe is appealing a judge's order to release details of sex abuse allegations made against Roman Catholic clergy who are now dead.

 Jones Day - Publications - Follow the Four R's: Maine Guidance On Gift Certificates As Abandoned Property
The Attorney General specifically noted that there is no law in Maine that prohibits a business from indicating on the face of a gift certificate that it is time limited, or in other words, will expire within a certain period of time.
According to the Attorney General, even though a business and the purchaser of a gift certificate may contract to time limit the use of the certificate, the business may not exploit the failure to use the certificate as a basis for claiming ownership of the monies used to purchase the gift certificate.
The Attorney General concluded that the 60% rule of § 1953(1)(G) was intended by the Maine Legislature as an inducement to issuers of gift certificates to not impose dormancy charges or expiration periods.
