Defense lawyer to represent Cuomo in nursing home probe

The administration of New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has selected a defense attorney to be the governor's representation in an investigation against him over his handling of the coronavirus outbreak in state nursing homes and other long-term care facilities.

Defense attorney Elkan Abramowitz will represent the chamber in several probes launched against the governor and his office, the former federal prosecutor confirmed to the Wall Street Journal.

One of the probes, by the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) and the US attorney in Brooklyn, is in its early stages and is focusing on some senior members of Cuomo's task force, while the other two are being handled by the Justice Department.
