ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - New York’s attorney general has sued in an effort to shut down a Brooklyn-based charity, saying it’s doing little to fight childhood leukemia.

Attorney General Eric Schneiderman says the National Children’s Leukemia Foundation has not conducted most programs advertised on its website and in solicitations, like a bone marrow registry and fulfilling last wishes of dying children.

The suit alleges that it has been run by founder Zvi Shor from his basement and that from 2009 to 2013 it raised $9.7 million from donors, most solicited by professional fundraisers paid about $7.5 million.

Shor’s attorney Douglas Gross tells the New York Times his client has denied any wrongdoing.
