A state Supreme Court judge in Manhattan has dismissed a lawsuit against the state Assembly that was filed by former employees of disgraced ex-politician Vito Lopez.
The state Assembly has entered into two contracts worth $210,000 for an outside counsel to handle sexual harassment policy development and investigations after a high-profile scandal.
A Buffalo-area Assemblyman accused of sexually harassing female staffers announced Sunday that he'll retire while continuing to defend himself in court against allegations he calls false.
Lopez has denied he harassed anyone.
Lopez, who resigned last year, has denied sexually harassing anyone.
