Court records made public on Tuesday suggest a time line for filing arguments in the case challenging the Moreland Commission on Public Corruption’s ability to investigate the Legislature.

Papers filed by attorneys for a coalition of law firms and the Legislature suggest a proposed outline that would stretch the challenges to subpoenas of law firms and other businesses that employ lawmakers from the commission to a March 17 adjournment.

The late date would send the court battle over the Moreland Commission into the middle of the legislative session, as Gov. Andrew Cuomo seeks both a major tax cut and some sort of an ethics package adopted from the panel’s preliminary report.

Lawyers for the Senate Co-Presidents Jeff Klein and Dean Skelos and Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver, along with major politically connected law firms, filed a challenge last month the commission’s jurisdiction to investigate the Legislature.

Cuomo, who created the commission in July, has asserted that the deputizing of commission members by Attorney General Eric Schneiderman subverts the concners about separation of powers.
