VICTORVILLE • The city is now being represented by international law firm Arent Fox in connection with an ongoing investigation by the Securities and Exchange Commission, city attorney Andre de Bortnowsky confirmed Friday.

City officials have discussed the SEC’s investigation during the City Council’s closed sessions. Members of the council are barred from discussing closed session matters publicly.

A call to de Bortnowsky Friday confirmed that the city attorney was no longer representing Victorville in the investigation, saying that attorney Terree Bowers of Arent Fox has taken the case.

Calls to Bowers’ Los Angeles office were not returned Friday.

Arent Fox specializes in government and business matters. The SEC has been investigating the way Victorville has spent its bond funds.
