Securities Law: SCOTUS and Appellate Review 2021 - What the Most Recent Decisions Mean For Your Practice

1h 1m

Created on October 04, 2021




Securities law is a fast-paced and constantly changing practice. Recent decisions by the Supreme Court and appellate courts across the country play a major role in shaping the securities law landscape. For example, decisions in cases such as Goldman Sachs Group Inc. v. Arkansas Teacher Retirement System, 141 S.Ct. 1951 (2021) and Wochos v. Tesla, Inc., 985 F.3d 1180 (9th Cir. 2021) 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 T. 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.
