On this week's edition of New York NOW, how has COVID-19 affected access to justice in New York? We'll have answers on this week's show.

Crime was down in every county of the state in March and April, but was that just because people stayed home? Albany County DA David Soares, Orange County DA David Hoovler, Erie County DA John Flynn, and Washington County Sheriff Jeff Murphy join me with their perspective.

A flood of lawsuits could be born from the COVID-19 pandemic, and some need legal help now. The New York State Bar Association's Hank Greenberg joins me with his perspective.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo and the state Legislature have placed new limits on COVID-related lawsuits in certain instances, but some want them to go further. Tom Stebbins from the Lawsuit Reform Alliance explains.

And Jon Campbell from the USA Today Network breaks down the rest.


Note: Information on COVID-19 is rapidly evolving. Check our blog posts for the latest information after watching the show.
