Halliburton: Argument, Policy, and What Might Happen Next?

Wednesday, April 30, 2014; 6:15 PM- 8:00 PM
City Bar Member Price: Free
Non Member Price: $25.00

On April 30, the New York City Bar Committee on Securities Litigation will host a panel discussion on Halliburton Co., et al., v. Erica P. John Fund, Inc., which many commentators are calling the most important securities case in years. In Halliburton, the U.S. Supreme Court will revisit its landmark decision in Basic, Inc. v. Levinson establishing the "fraud-on-the-market" doctrine in securities fraud cases. The discussion will explore the case's implications for the fraud-on-the-market doctrine, and for securities litigation more broadly.

Speakers: Roger Cooper, Cleary Gottlieb; Todd Cosenza, Willkie Farr & Gallagher; Professor Merritt B. Fox, Michael E. Patterson Professor of Law and NASDAQ Professor for the Law and Economics of Capital Markets at Columbia Law School; James Goldfarb, Murphy & McGonigle; Daniel Laguardia, Shearman & Sterling; Robert Pietrzak, Sidley Austin ; Laura Posner, Bernstein Litowitz Berger & Grossmann; Peter Simmons, Fried Frank

Sponsored by: Committee on Securities Litigation, Todd Cosenza, Chair
