The Moreland Commission on Public Corruption has officially withdrawn its subpoenas seeking more information on lawmakers’ outside income and business interests, court documents filed this week show.

In a letter to state Supreme Court Justice Alice Schlesinger, the commission’s attorney writes that both Moreland co-chairs Milton Williams and Onondaga County District Attorney William Fitzpatrick have withdrawn the subpoenas as the panel’s work winds down.

In the same letter, Assistant Solicitor General Judith Vale requests that court declare the subsequent motions to quash the subpoenas moot.

“As a result, we respectfully request that the Court also dismiss the pending motions to quash, motions to intervene, and the declaratory-judgment complaint as moot, and close the above-referenced matters,” she wrote in the letter. “We will be reaching out to counsel for petitioners/plaintiffs regarding this request.”

The letter was filed with the court as part of an ongoing legal challenge to the Moreland Commission’s power to investigate and subpoena business the employ state lawmakers.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo created the commission last year after lawmakers failed to approve any ethics measures in the wake of a series of corruption arrests that hit the Capitol.

The commission, which produced a preliminary report in December following a series of public hearings, issued subpoenas to businesses that employ state lawmakers earlier year, mainly targeting law firms.

The firms, along with the Assembly and Senate, challenged the authority of the commission to issue the subpoenas, while the commission pointed to the extra powers granted by the state attorney general’s office.

But Cuomo and lawmakers last month struck an agreement on new ethics laws, including increased enforcement at the state Board of Elections. After lawmakers agreed to a state budget that contained the ethics reforms, the governor announced he was disbanding the commission.

The news that commission was disbanding was criticized by U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara, who assumed possession of records and other documents generated by the commission.

Cuomo defended the decision to end the commission’s work, noting that he had always planned to do so once an ethics deal was reached and that he didn’t want to create a “permanent bureaucracy.”
