The New York Federal Reserve Bank did not bring securities law disclosures for insurer American International Group Inc to the attention of Timothy Geithner, who headed the bank at the time of AIG's bailout in 2008, the bank's top lawyer said on Friday.

Matters of AIG securities law disclosure were not brought to the attention of the president of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, Thomas Baxter, the New York Fed's general counsel, said in a statement.

The U.S. Treasury and White House also have said Geithner was not involved in any e-mailed discussions between New York Fed and AIG lawyers over disclosures of the insurer's payments to banks.
