Cuomo is also seeking the names and compensation information of those at Merrill Lynch who received bonuses shortly before the firm merged with Bank of America. In that case, Cuomo has accused Bank of America of undermining his authority, interfering with his investigation and attempting to influence the government's witnesses, according to court documents.
Bank of America has argued that releasing the names and numbers to the public would be detrimental to the company.
"Bank of America has cooperated with the attorney general's investigation into Merrill Lynch bonuses and will continue to do so," spokesman Scott Silvestri said in a statement. "Regarding the bonus information requested, Bank of America has continually offered to provide that information subject to reasonable confidentiality."
Cuomo's office said that the bank has not demonstrated that it had ever "treated the information in a confidential manner."
A ruling is expected later this week on whether or not the company will have to turn over the information.
