A Local Law to amend the administrative code of the city of New York, in relation to requiring the corporation counsel to submit quarterly reports to the city council.
 
 
Be it enacted by the Council as follows:
 
      Section 1. The administrative code of the city of New York is amended by adding a new section 7-111 to read as follows:
      § 7-111. Corporation counsel; reports of the corporation counsel to the city council.
      a. The corporation counsel shall submit a quarterly report to the city council of all payments agreed to by the office of the corporation counsel on behalf of the city of New York in settlement of any civil action in which such office represents a defendant. Such report shall specify the number of settlement agreements executed during the previous quarter and the dollar amount of each such settlement, and any settlements executed at any other time after enactment of this law that were not previously included in such a report. Such report shall also sort such settlement data by the defendant in the settled action, which shall mean, if the defendant is an individual, such individual's agency employer.
      b. The first report required by subdivision a of this section shall be submitted to the city council on January thirty-first in the year following the enactment of this law. Each subsequent report shall be submitted by April 30, July 31, and October 31 of that year, and shall be submitted to the council on these four dates each year.
      §2. This local law shall take effect immediately.
