On January 11, 2016, Morvillo Abramowitz partner Elkan Abramowitz was quoted in a Wall Street Journal article entitled, “Investigation Into Closing of N.Y.’s Moreland Commission Finds ‘Insufficient Evidence’ of Crime.” The article discusses a federal investigation into the Cuomo administration's involvement with and disbanding of an anticorruption commission. In a statement, Manhattan U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara said, “there was insufficient evidence to prove a federal crime.” In response to this decision, Mr. Abramowitz said, “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.
