ALBANY, N.Y. (WHEC) — Former Governor Andrew Cuomo wants New York State to pay his legal bills and now he’s suing the attorney general over it.

He filed the suit against State AG Letitia James on Thursday.

Cuomo claims she violated state law by denying him public assistance for his defense against a workplace sexual harassment claim from a state trooper.

Cuomo said he was acting “within the scope of his employment duties” at the time.

James responded to Cuomo’s claim saying “sexually harassing young women who work for you is not part of anyone’s job description.”
