This bill provides that the Attorney General shall represent current and former employees of the county prosecutor's office in any civil action arising from an act or omission in the scope of employment. The Attorney General's duty to defend county constitutional officers extends to civil actions that allege tortuous conduct, civil rights violations under federal or State laws, employment discrimination suits and retaliation claims brought under the "Law Against Discrimination," P.L.1945, c.169 (C.10:5-1 et seq.), and public record access laws. The bill also requires the State to indemnify county prosecutors and their current and former employees for the costs of monetary judgments entered against them.
