Our panel of experienced litigators will address the hot topics in federal securities law either now pending before the Supreme Court or likely to reach the Court shortly. Equally divided between the plaintiffs and defense bar, the panelists will debate the merits of the issues raised by these topics, explore the implications of their resolution on existing securities doctrines and assess their impact on current practice. The topics to be examined include (1) the Supreme Court’s anticipated decision in Lorenzo v. SEC and its implication for Central Bank of Denver, N.A. v. First Interstate Bank of Denver, N.A. and its progeny; (2) the Ninth Circuit’s Mineworkers’ Pension Scheme v. First Solar Inc. decision and whether loss causation can be shown even when the market is ignorant of an alleged fraud; and (3) did the Second Circuit’s decision in Indiana Pub. Ret. Sys. v. SAIC, Inc. approve an involuntary disclosure regime and what are its limits to liability.
Dan Roeser, a partner in Goodwin's Securities Litigation and White Collar Defense group, will be a featured speaker.
