The abuse often happened during what were supposed to be romantic encounters, but the women said the violence was not consensual.
Schneiderman's disgrace stunned women's groups, which suddenly found themselves deploring a man they had embraced as a proven and powerful ally.
Schneiderman had investigated a number of Trump business entities - including Trump University - and it's hard to know if the next attorney general will continue watch-dogging the president's businesses so methodically.
Now New York's top prosecutor is facing his own investigation.
Two of the women who spoke to the magazine, Michelle Manning Barish and Tanya Selvaratnam, said they had been choked and hit repeatedly by Schneiderman.
