STATEMENT FROM A.G. SCHNEIDERMAN ON STATE SUPREME COURT RULING REGARDING IDNYC INFORMATION

NEW YORK – Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman issued the following statement:

“Today’s decision is a win for the one million people who signed up for IDNYC. The decision protects the personal information for those New Yorkers, including some of our most marginalized and vulnerable populations, and mitigates their risk of identity theft or hate crimes.  I was proud to file an amicus brief in support of the City, and stand ready to join the administration in fighting any appeal from today’s ruling.”
