Victory Over Citizens United

This week in the Citizens United v. Schneiderman case, the judge dismissed Citizens United's challenge to the Attorney General's longstanding donor disclosure rules. Under the Court's ruling, Citizens United must finally disclose its biggest donors to the Attorney General's Office.

Attorney General Schneiderman issued the following statement in response:
"Today’s decision is a victory for common sense oversight of New York’s vast nonprofit sector. New Yorkers deserve to know their donations are protected against fraud and abuse, and today the court protected that right by dismissing each and every one of Citizen United’s claims."

Protecting Animals And Families From Exploitation

Attorney General Schneiderman ordered former Scottsville Veterinary Adoptions, Inc. to distribute its assets to the Humane Society and Lollypop Farm after an investigation by the AG's office found that the group had been selling dying pets to unsuspecting New Yorkers. As a result of the agreement, the adoption center will no longer be permitted to operate as a non-profit and will be subject to inspection in order to ensure compliance with the New York Pet Lemon Law.
