Drafting the Form SD & Documenting Compliance with the Rules

Transcripts  Transcripts    

Recorded on: May. 6, 2014

JOSEPH A. HALL: Thanks, Brian. I think the SEC is always worried when somebody raises a First Amendment challenge in the DC Circuit because one day the DC Circuit is going to realize that the securities laws do nothing but compelled speech and restrain speech. When the appellate judges and their law clerk start to think about that, I think we could have bigger problems down the line.
