Search Begins For New NYS Attorney General

In addition to prosecuting the pro-life advocates, Schneiderman wants to create a 16-foot buffer zone around the Choices Women's Medical Center. She also has considerable credentials, arguing 20 cases before the U.S. Supreme Court.

TBS' late-night show hosted by Samantha Bee, "Full Frontal", is in full-blown damage control mode over Bee's past praise of the now-disgraced, now-former New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman.

Mr Schneiderman became attorney general in 2010 and had meant to run for re-election to the post this year.

"When you read those stories, reading the allegations, it definitely felt like numerous cases we see in domestic violence all the time", she said. A fourth woman said she had similar experiences. The women did not file police reports or offer physical evidence of the alleged crimes, experts said, meaning that evidence may be confined to photos, notes and others who may have been told about the incidents.

"Any conviction, or any charge for Mr. Schneiderman, is going to matter to him", said Julie Rendelman, an attorney and former prosecutor.

But not in the eyes of the public. Hours after the story broke that four women had accused him of nonconsensual sexual physical violence, Schneiderman, 63, resigned from his post.

"I mean, look, the movement is extraordinary".

"I don't have an official response at this time, but it's certainly something that is very concerning and something that we're taking very seriously".

Vance's shop had, "at minimum, an appearance of conflict", Cuomo said, because the Manhattan DA's office was now being investigated by the attorney general for its handling of allegations of sexual assault against Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein.

Madeline Singas, the Nassau County district attorney, was tapped by Cuomo. That's why leaders of women's groups are still trying to make sense of the allegations that he was a serial domestic violence abuser.

The governor's counsel, Alphonso David, issued a scathing response Wednesday, accusing Vance of a "blatant conflict of interest".

Hours after the story was published online, Schneiderman announced his resignation as attorney general, effective Tuesday, May 8.

"We have never seen anything as despicable as what we've seen right here", Mr. Schneiderman said of the accusations against Weinstein.

A Rockland County lawyer has thrown his hat into the ring for the state attorney general seat vacated by Eric Schneiderman. She has held executive positions in the Queens and Brooklyn District Attorneys' Offices, and served as a trial attorney in the Manhattan District Attorney's Office.

The state Constitution requires the Legislature to fill vacancies. Todd Kaminsky (D-Long Beach), former Manhattan U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara, and perennial candidate Zephyr Teachout.

Some lawmakers favor keeping a placeholder in the office for the next six months, leaving voters to decide the next attorney general in November.

The stakes couldn't be higher. The company has fought the release of documents to both ny and MA in court, arguing the inquires are violating its free-speech rights.
