Securities Law and SCOTUS: What the Most Recent Decisions Mean For Your Practice

1h 2m

Created on November 18, 2019




The Supreme Court has always played a major role in shaping the securities law landscape. Recently, the Supreme Court's decisions in cases such as Cyan, Inc. v. Beaver County Employees Retirement Fund, 138 S. Ct. 1061 (2018), Lorenzo v. Securities Exchange Commission, 139 S. Ct. 1094 (2019) and denial of a petition for certiorari in First Solar, Inc. v. Mineworkers' Pension Scheme, 139 S. Ct. 2741 (2019) have fundamentally changed the practice of securities law on a day-to-day basis. Courts across the country and practitioners on both sides of the aisle are currently grappling with how to interpret, utilize, and apply these important decisions in their day-to-day practice.           

Join Carol C. Villegas and James Christie for a discussion on these issues. Ms. Villegas is a partner and Mr. Christie is an associate at Labaton Sucharow LLP. Ms. Villegas and Mr. Christie represent institutional investors (such as public pension funds and hedge funds) who have suffered financial losses in the stock market as a result of securities fraud committed by publicly traded companies and their officers and executives.
