New York, NY - August 24, 2016 - Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman issued the following statement in response to Armor Correctional Health Services’ decision to not renew its contract with Nassau County jails:

“This is an important and positive step forward for Nassau County taxpayers, who have been forced to foot the bill for a company that has failed to live up to its obligations and put patient health at risk in the process. Armor's history of poor and inadequate healthcare is exactly why my office filed suit against the company last month, and is why we sought an end to Armor's contract as part of our lawsuit. While I am pleased by today's news, the company's withdrawal from Nassau County does not erase Armor's history of failure, and our claims against the company on behalf of the people of New York will continue moving forward.”
