(Salt Lake City-AP) -- The state Division of Consumer Protection has initiated a subpoena of bank records for the Parker Jensen Support Fund because the boy's family, cited last week for failing to file the paperwork to make the fund legal, continues to disregard the state's requests.
Division director Francine Giani said Wednesday her agency had tried to work with the Jensens to resolve the matter.
But letters sent by registered mail went unanswered and repeated promises to supply information to the division were not kept.
The Jensens were cited because they haven't finished the legal process allowing them to solicit and collect funds to help pay for 13-year-old's medical care.
Parker was diagnosed with a rare form of bone cancer last spring. His parents' disagreement with doctors over treatment forced the family into a months-long public custody battle with Utah authorities.
