Federal prosecutors, lacking evidence after three weeks of trial, dropped 11 of 14 criminal counts Thursday against Robert A. Ferrante as the government rested its case against the former owner of Consolidated Savings Bank and five others. On their own motion, prosecutors dropped all charges against Ferrante relating to a series of loans that the now-defunct Irvine thrift made to Pyrotronics Inc. in Anaheim, once the state's biggest maker of so-called safe and sane fireworks.
