On January 11, 2016, Morvillo Abramowitz partner Elkan Abramowitz was quoted in a New York Times article entitled, “Moreland Commission Inquiry Finds ‘Insufficient Evidence’ to Prove a Crime.” The article discusses an inquiry by the U.S. Attorney’s Office into possible interference with the operation of an anticorruption panel and its demise. The investigation has concluded and Preet Bharara indicated that “there was insufficient evidence to bring a criminal case against New York Governor, Andrew M. Cuomo.” In response to this decision, Mr. Abramowitz thanked Mr. Bharara’s office for acknowledging that no charges would be brought against Mr. Cuomo and noted that “we were always confident there was no illegality here, and we appreciate the U.S. attorney clarifying this for the public record.” The firm represented the Administration’s Executive Chamber in this investigation.
