[HN2] In Rhode Island, it is well-settled that suits for the public should be placed in public and responsible hands. The public officer vested with that authority is the Attorney General of the state. This duty of maintaining the rights of the public is vested in the Commonwealth, and it is exercised in the United States, as in England, by the attorney-general. Although exclusive, the Attorney General's authority to redress a purely public wrong excepts those instances where one of the public who is injured has a distinct personal legal interest different from that of the public at large.
