Debate to discuss liability in securities fraud

Back to TopE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

The Federalist Society student chapter at Indiana University Maurer School of Law is hosting a debate Nov. 17 in response to a bill in Congress that could overturn recent Supreme Court of the United States' decisions.

"Securities Fraud - Should Congress overturn Stoneridge and expose lawyers and financial advisors to greater liability?" will feature a debate between University of Chicago Law School assistant professor M. Todd Henderson and Maurer School of Law professor Donna Nagy. The Liability for Aiding and Abetting Securities Violation Act, S. 1551, would allow shareholders to sue secondary actors for fraud that is committed by their corporate clients. The bill would essentially overturn Stoneridge Investment Partners LLC v. Scientific-Atlanta Inc., et al., 128 S. Ct. 761 (2008), and Central Bank of Denver v. First Interstate Bank of Denver, 511 U.S. 164, 114 S. Ct. 1439 (1994).

The debate begins at noon in Room 122 of the law school and is open to the public.

  2. We won!!!! It was a long expensive battle but we did it. I just wanted people to know it is possible. And if someone can point me I. The right direction to help change the way the courts look as grandparents as only grandparents. The courts assume the parent does what is in the best interest of the child...and the court is wrong. A lot of the time it is spite and vindictiveness that separates grandparents and grandchildren. It should not have been this long and hard and expensive...Something needs to change...

  3. Typo on # of Indiana counties

  4. The Supreme Court is very proud that they are Giving a billion dollar public company from Texas who owns Odyssey a statewide monopoly which consultants have said is not unnecessary but worse they have already cost Hoosiers well over $100 MILLION, costing tens of millions every year and Odyssey is still not connected statewide which is in violation of state law. The Supreme Court is using taxpayer money and Odyssey to compete against a Hoosier company who has the only system in Indiana that is connected statewide and still has 40 of the 82 counties despite the massive spending and unnecessary attacks
