Barbara UnderwoodNew York Solicitor General Barbara Underwood will replace outgoing state Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, on an acting basis, officials said Tuesday.

Schneiderman abruptly announced his resignation late Monday after The New Yorker published a story involving sexual assault accusations from four women, and after Gov. Andrew Cuomo urged him to step down. He will leave office at the end of the day Tuesday.

"I'm grateful to work with the best colleagues in the business -- including Barbara Underwood, who will be acting NY [attorney general]," Amy Spitalnick, a spokeswoman for the AG's office, tweeted. "She's argued 20 cases before the Supreme Court, clerked for Thurgood Marshall, & much more. The work continues."
