Applicants must reside in (or intend to soon become a resident of) New York State, and be admitted to practice law in New York State. Admission to the United States District Courts for the Southern and Eastern Districts of New York is preferred. In addition, the Public Officers Law requires that OAG attorneys be citizens of the United States. A two (2) year commitment upon being hired is a condition of employment.

Duties Description The Court Administration and Regulatory Enforcement (CARE) Section of the Litigation Bureau in the New York State Office of the Attorney General (OAG) is seeking an experienced litigator to serve in the New York City office.

The Litigation Bureau represents the State of New York and its agencies and officers in federal and state courts in civil actions and proceedings involving civil rights, education, social services, public employment, public health, law enforcement, corrections, state finance, insurance, taxation, and other litigation matters arising out of state legislation, regulations, and operations.

Attorneys assigned to the Court Administration and Regulatory Enforcement Section primarily represent and defend the Office of Court Administration and its related entities, Department of Financial Services, Department of Civil Service, Department of Labor, Division of Housing and Community Renewal, Division of Human Rights, and Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation. The Section's attorneys handle a wide variety of federal and state court actions involving, among other things, constitutional, civil rights, labor and employment, fair housing, banking and state finance, state regulation, and administrative law issues. The Section's cases are often high profile, frequently present complex questions of constitutional law and statutory and regulatory interpretation, and have significant policy and financial implications for the State. The Section offers a diverse and stimulating litigation practice, with attorneys handling all phases of litigation from inception through trial and having frequent opportunities to appear in court.

Additional Comments OAG employees serve more than 19.85 million state residents through a wide variety of occupations. We offer a comprehensive New York State benefits package, including paid leave, health, dental, vision and retirement benefits, and family-friendly policies.

About State of New York

While MSSNY believes that the main value of the Settlement Agreement is the Prospective Relief, including the promises CIGNA has made to change its business practices going forward, the Settlement does provide a minimum of $70 million in damages to physician class members. In order to preserve the physician's ability to submit claims for retrospective monetary payments, MSSNY strongly urges physicians and medical groups to retain billing and medical records relating to medical services provided to CIGNA members - dating back to August 4, 1990, the beginning of the class period. Question: When can I submit requests for payment?
