From the report:

If you raise money via Kickstarter and don’t deliver products you promised backers, the government will come after you.

In what is the first consumer protection lawsuit involving crowdfunding, Washington State Attorney General Bob Ferguson today filed a suit against Ed Nash and his Nashville, Tenn.-based company, Altius Management.
