#BREAKING: We filed a lawsuit against @amazon over its failures to provide adequate health and safety measures for employees during the pandemic and for retaliating against those who voiced concerns for their safety.
Amazon put profits over people.
We found that Amazon failed to adhere to proper cleaning and disinfection protocols, refused to notify employees when colleagues tested positive for #COVID19, and didn't allow employees to take basic precautions to protect themselves from a fatal virus.
When employees reported these safety concerns, Amazon retaliated against them by unlawfully firing and disciplining them, in violation of New York's whistleblower protections.
We're filing a lawsuit against two individuals who repeatedly and violently blocked access to a Planned Parenthood Center in New York City.
No person, no business, and no government body has the right to deny or limit a woman’s access to an abortion.
As recently as this weekend and on many occasions in 2020, these anti-choice protesters harassed, threatened, and used physical violence against patients and escorts who were seeking care at Planned Parenthood.
Local, state, and federal law explicitly prohibits obstructing access to reproductive health clinics.
We are also seeking a preliminary injunction to immediately stop these threats and violent acts and ensure patients have safe access to the care they need.
#BREAKING: We’re delivering more than $573 million to communities across the nation that have been ravaged by the opioid crisis and holding @McKinsey accountable for its role in turbocharging this destruction.
For over a decade, McKinsey helped fuel the opioid crisis by promoting marketing schemes and consulting services to opioid makers, including Purdue Pharma.
McKinsey helped Purdue target doctors they knew would overprescribe opioids and made millions off of this harm.
As a result of today’s agreement, New York will receive more than $32 million and McKinsey will never be able to perpetrate this type of fraud and deception again.
#BREAKING: I’m filing a lawsuit against the New York City Police Department to bring an end to its pattern of repeatedly and blatantly violating the rights of New Yorkers.
No one is above the law — not even the individuals charged with enforcing it.
Our landmark lawsuit outlines the @NYPDnews' years of using excessive force and making false arrests against New Yorkers, most recently during racial justice protests in 2020.
This unlawful conduct has led to severe injuries and violated the basic right to peaceful protest.
The NYPD and its senior leaders failed to address this longstanding pattern of abuse by not properly training, supervising, and disciplining officers to prevent misconduct, despite knowing and publicly admitting that it violated the rights of New Yorkers.
Today, we're going to the Supreme Court to continue our challenge against President Trump's attempt to politicize the #2020Census and exclude undocumented immigrants from the congressional apportionment.
We won't allow this president to put politics above the law.
Hoy, vamos a la Corte Suprema para continuar nuestro desafío contra el intento del presidente Trump de politizar el #Censo2020 y excluir a los inmigrantes indocumentados del reparto del Congreso.
No permitiremos que este presidente ponga la política por encima de la ley.
The Constitution & Census Act are crystal clear — every person residing in the US during the census, regardless of legal status, must be counted.
The president is trying to politicize the census to deny immigrant-rich states, like New York, our fair representation in Congress.
I took action to force the Trump Organization, and specifically EVP Eric Trump, to comply with my office’s ongoing investigation into its financial dealings.
For months, the Trump Organization has failed to fully comply with our subpoenas in this investigation.
Our investigation began after Michael Cohen testified before Congress that Trump’s annual financial statements inflated the values of his assets to obtain favorable terms for loans & insurance coverage, while also deflating the value of other assets to reduce real estate taxes.
We are seeking thousands of documents and testimony from multiple witnesses regarding several Trump Organization properties and transactions, including from Eric Trump, who was intimately involved in one or more transactions under review.
I understand the @NYPDnews is telling the press that they were not "formally" invited to this hearing. The NYPD was, in fact, invited on multiple occasions.
On June 10 at ~7:40pm, the Commanding Officer of the NYPD Legal Bureau, who has been liaising with our team on this investigation, was informed about the hearing and the @NYPDnews was invited to attend.
On June 11 at ~10:10am, a written Public Notice about the hearing was shared with the @NYPDnews via email.
This email was shared with the Assistant Deputy Commissioner of Legal Matters and the Director of Intergovernmental Affairs for the NYPD.
