Professor Phil Hackney Appears on 60 Minutes

Pitt Law Professor Philip Hackney appeared in the national media on May 14, 2023 during an interview with 60 Minutes. In the sit-down with Sharyn Alfonsi, Hackney discussed a whistleblower complaint to the IRS that alleges the misuse of a more than $100 billion reserve fund of The Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter Day Saints. "The fundamental claim to me is that Ensign Peak brings money in, and it's the Hotel California. It never comes out," Hackney said. He also said the claims about the Mormon church's investment fund are complex and in a gray area.
