N.Y. Correction Law Section 122
Control of fiscal transactions and recovery of debts


All the fiscal transactions and dealings on account of each correctional facility shall be conducted by and in the name of the superintendent thereof, who shall have control over all matters of finance relating to such facility, subject to the direction and supervision of the commissioner of correction. Such superintendent shall be capable in law of suing in all courts and places, and in all matters concerning the facility, by his name of office, and by that name shall be authorized to sue for and recover all sums of money due from any person to any former agent, agent and superintendent or superintendent of the facility, or to the people of this state on account of such facility. But it shall not be lawful in any such suit or action for any defendant to plead or give in evidence any offset or matter by way of recoupment or counterclaim except for payments made, and not credited to such defendant, or to recover any judgment against such superintendent in such suit or action other than for the costs and disbursements therein. Each superintendent shall enforce the payment of all debts due to the facility under his charge with as little delay as possible, but subject to the approbation of the commissioner of correction, he may accept any security from any debtor on granting him time, that he may deem conducive to the interests of the state. The commissioner of correction or any person authorized in the rules and regulations of the department may at any time exercise the powers granted to a superintendent hereunder.
