§ 533. Liability of county for negligence of county clerk and
employees of county clerk's office. Notwithstanding any inconsistent
provision of law, general, special or local, a county may by local law
assume the liability to save harmless and protect its county clerk and
employees of the county clerk's office from financial loss arising out
of any claim, demand, suit or judgment by reason of alleged negligence
of said county clerk or employees, provided such act was committed in

Such county may by act of its legislative body arrange for purchase and
maintain appropriate insurance with any insurance company authorized to
do business in the state of New York for coverage against such
liability.
