New York Attorney General Andrew Cuomo announced settlements with a law firm that does bond counsel work and another attorney in an ongoing investigation into the practice of school districts and municipalities improperly listing outside attorneys as employees. Cuomo said the probe will reveal "hundreds and hundreds" of cases of attorneys engaged in an activity he called fraudulent.

"This issue is chronic, it is widespread, it is pervasive, it is all across the state of New York," Cuomo said. "This is a fraud that has gone on for years."
