Andrew M. Cuomo, New York's attorney general, took aim at Wall Street's looming bonuses on Monday, sending letters to eight of the nation's biggest banks demanding information on how they structured those payouts.
Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo has asked people if they think Eric T. Schneiderman, the attorney general of New York state, wears eyeliner.
Schneiderman has told people that he believes Cuomo’s administration is Machiavellian and is out to undermine him.
A little backbiting by the officials and their aides, who occupy power suites at opposite ends of the state Capitol’s second floor, might be chalked up to the kind of rivalry that is an unseemly but unsurprising fact of life atop the state’s political food chain.
NEW YORK (Reuters) - Merrill Lynch & Co may have misled Congress in representing last November that it planned to pay out bonuses at year end, when in fact it decided to accelerate those payouts, New York Attorney General Andrew Cuomo said on Wednesday.
New York State Attorney General Andrew Cuomo filed a motion Monday asking former Merrill Lynch Chief Executive John Thain to provide more information about bonuses paid out on the eve of the bank's merger with Bank of America last year.
