We reached a historic $600M settlement with for their 2017 data breach. The settlement includes up to $425M in consumer restitution. Equifax put profits over privacy & greed over the people & now we’re holding them accountable for the millions they put at risk.

We're launching an inquiry into the companies responsible for recent construction at this subway station. This is an incredibly dangerous situation that could have resulted in the loss of a life. & I are demanding answers.

We arrested & charged a NYC Pharmacy owner & 3 managers for participating in a multi-million dollar Medicaid fraud scheme involving HIV drugs. Through the First Choice Pharmacy in Harlem, they allegedly stole over $10 million from NY & taxpayers. We're holding them accountable.

When the Federal Government delays climate action, they deny environmental justice. Proud of New York for stepping up in the face of inaction to pass & sign the Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act. When it comes to the climate crisis, we can't afford to wait.

Let’s be clear, that type of rhetoric is: Dangerous. Hateful. Neither representative of the nation we live in nor the values a President of the United States should ever revel in.

The IRS’s move to end tax benefits for charitable giving is yet another attempt by the Trump Admin to unfairly target the hardworking taxpayers of states like New York. We filed a lawsuit to protect our taxpayers. We're standing firm against this unlawful attack.

Saddened to hear about the passing of former Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens. Justice Stevens was a pillar of our justice system who moved our country forward in some of the most significant ways to ensure a more equal society for all. We are grateful for his service.

No matter the industry, non-compete jobs & no-poach agreements have proven to unfairly target low-income workers, depressing wages & restricting workers’ job mobility & advancement. We're urging the to protect workers from these anticompetitive labor practices.

Despite the ACA being the law of the land for almost a decade, the Trump Admin has been relentless in their efforts to strip Americans of its protections. We're leading a coalition of AGs to defend this law & the protections it provides to the people.

This inaction by the DOJ in the death of Eric Garner shows they've turned their back on seeking & serving justice. We all saw the same devastating video 5 years ago. Our eyes did not lie. We'll continue to fight to reform a criminal justice system that remains broken.
