Lawsuit Filed Challenging Replacement of New York’s Ethics Committee
The Center for Judicial Accountability filed a lawsuit challenging the validity of the New York Ethics Commission Reform Act of 2022.
The act was passed as part of the state’s budget bill and would replace the Joint Commission on Public Ethics with a new Commission on Ethics and Lobbying in Government on July 8.
The suit, filed with the Albany County Supreme Court, argues the act is unconstitutional and requests it be invalidated.
Petitioner requested an opportunity to be heard on an application for a temporary restraining order and a hearing has been scheduled for June 17.
