  1. It depends what docs are fraudulent, and to whom you are asking the State owes a duty. Generally, the AG represents the State as an entity, rather than individual citizens. Often people sue the State for things that the State did wrong, and it is the AG who tries to protect the State by attempting to disprove the allegations. On the other hand, the AG also prosecutes crimes, and sometimes advocates on behalf of victims. Without more information as to what your situation entails, it is hard to give any more exact answer. If you feel the State or one of its employees wronged you, it would likely be a good idea to consult your own attorney rather than just relying on the AG to do take action.
