New York State Legislature sues to silence corruption probes

Says subpoenas are intended as a distraction rather than a legitimate inquiry

The New York State Capitol Building

The New York State Legislature has sued an anti-corruption commission to deny subpoenas that were issued earlier this year. The commission was formed under the 1907 Moreland Act which gives the governor vast investigative authority, after Andrew Cuomo was unable to find agreement with the legislature over his proposed anti-corruption laws.

The commission filed the probes in question when the legislature refused to release information on lawmakers earning more than $20,000.
