The clerk of the courts in Bronx County – the man responsible for all record keeping pertaining to court cases and proceedings – has been suspended amid a law enforcement probe into his work, authorities said.
Luis Diaz, who has served as clerk since 2009, is being probed by the office of New York Attorney General Leticia James, authorities said.
Personnel from James’ office serving a search warrant recently raided the Bronx County Clerk’s Office as part of an anti-corruption investigation, authorities said.
It was not immediately clear Monday what actions of Diaz’s are being scrutinized by law enforcement.
Diaz, a politically-connected, ex-state assemblyman, could not immediately be reached for comment.
