The Assembly Ethics Committee yesterday had to drop the investigation into former Orange County Assemblyman Mike Duvall after they were advised the panel lacked authority over the issue.

“The Legislative Counsel has concluded that Mr. Duvall’s resignation terminates our legal ability to investigate the alleged conduct of Mr. Duvall while he was still a member," explained co-chair and Assemblymember Paul Krekorian (D-Burbank). "While I take counsel’s advice and analysis seriously, I am not prepared to agree with that conclusion at this point."
