The New York Daily News reports the ex-governor filed a lawsuit in Manhattan Supreme Court Wednesday, exactly one year after he resigned from office, saying NYS Attorney General Letitia James wrongly rejected his request to have taxpayers cover the cost of his legal counsel in a federal claim filed by a female New York State Trooper who accused him of sexually harassing and inappropriately touching her.

According to the Times Union, AG James rejected Cuomo’s request for counsel in defense of the federal lawsuit without providing a reason. Cuomo’s lawyer Rita Glavin said that James’ denial was “arbitrary, capricious, contrary to the plain text of the statute, biased, personally and politically conflicted,” as well as a dereliction of duty.

Times Untion reported that Cuomo’s filing Wednesday argued that Cuomo is entitled to representation paid by the state since the alleged acts took place “while he was acting within the scope of his public employment and duties.”
