SEC Report on Cross-Border Securities Litigation

The SEC has issued a new report on cross-border securities litigation. Kevin LaCroix has the story in a new post. Here’s the introductory paragraph – the post adds useful commentary and links:

"On April 11, 2012, as required by the Dodd-Frank Act, the SEC released its study of cross-border private securities litigation, entitled “Study on the Cross-Border Scope of the Private Right of Action Under Section 10(b) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934” (here). This Commission study considers possible alternative approaches to the question of cross-border private securities litigation. It also provides a useful and detailed over view of the ways in which the lower courts have been approaching these issues in the wake of the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in the Morrison v. National Australia Bank case."
