Cuomo Sues NYS AG For Not Paying Legal Fees
Written by Site Hub on August 12, 2022
Earlier this week, former Governor Andrew Cuomo filed a petition that he is entitled to representation by private counsel paid for by the State of New York in connection with the claim filed against him by a State Police investigator. Cuomo has filed a lawsuit against NYS Attorney General Letitia James.
A spokeswoman for the Office of the Attorney General has issued a statement stating: “Andrew Cuomo is trying to force New Yorkers to pay his legal bills because he believes sexual harassment was within his ‘scope of employment’ as governor. Sexually harassing young women who work for you is not part of anyone’s job description. Taxpayers should not have to pony up for legal bills that could reach millions of dollars so Mr. Cuomo’s lawyer can attack survivors of his abuse.”
