ALBANY, N.Y. - It's been a week since Eric Schneiderman stepped down as State Attorney General.

Since then, a lot of names have been mentioned as interim replacements.

Starting Tuesday, state lawmakers will hold closed-door interviews with thirteen people who've applied for the position.

The interviews will be conducted by six Assembly members and two State Senators in Albany.

The legislature is authorized by law to appoint someone to fill out Schneiderman's term.

But lawmakers could also choose to leave Acting Attorney General Barbara Underwood in the job.

Underwood is one of the candidates who will be interviewed.

There are some other high-profile candidates who have decided not to take part in the interview process.

They include State Senator Michael Gianaris, Public Advocate Letitia James, law professor Zephyr Teachout, and Congressman Sean Patrick Maloney.

Schneiderman resigned last week after four women accused him of abuse.

He denies all the claims.
