The New York Attorney General’s Office said the court has ruled on a motion to block the dissolution of the pension fund from St. Clare’s Hospital.
As a result of the ruling, New York Attorney General Letitia James will have access to over 100 pieces of evidence to examine the fund and its collapse. She will also be able to depose the fund’s board president and attorney.
St. Clare’s pensioners will now be able to attend future deliberations in the dissolution hearing. According to Sen. Jim Tedisco, the board has tried to block pensioners from speaking at the hearings. Tedisco also said he was told by the Attorney General’s Office that the board tired to take money that was left in the pension fund and leave.
