This office takes action against real estate developers who cheat #homebuyers - this time, it's against the Mohrings on #LongIsland, who are now barred from selling #condominiums after they failed to make needed repairs that endangered the lives of condo residents.

New Yorkers deserve to live in a state with a strong set of procedures in place to protect them from #gunviolence . Today, the State Supreme Court agreed with my office that the #NYSAFE  Act established those necessary safeguards without infringing on the rights of responsible #gun  owners, and upheld New York’s comprehensive law.
