The New York attorney general’s office announced on Monday it has taken legal action to reverse a $103 million reduction in the payment New York received on April 15 from cigarette makers under a 1998 settlement between 46 states and the tobacco industry.

The attorney general asked Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Charles E. Ramos, the judge assigned to State of New York v. Philip Morris, 400361/97, for declaratory judgment exempting New York from a reduction of this year’s payment to $737 million from $840 million.
