When Gov. Cuomo was attorney general, his office approved a settlement for a racial discrimination case that included a confidentiality clause, the New York Times reports. The state had agreed to pay $49,000 to settle a case where the Office of Mental Health had forced a black employee to resign after injuring a girl he was trying to restrain. Two white employees involved in a more serious instance were not fired. The settlement was revealed in documents obtained through a freedom of information request.
