Jarkesy Supreme Court Ruling Limits SEC's Enforcement Authority

July 11, 2024

Harvard Law School Forum on Corporate Governance

In a 6-3 decision issued on June 27, 2024 in SEC v. Jarkesy, the U.S. Supreme Court curtailed the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission’s (“SEC”) enforcement authority in recognizing that there is a right to a jury trial in SEC actions alleging securities fraud where civil penalties are sought. Prior to the Jarkesy opinion, the SEC had unfettered discretion to bring securities fraud actions in the forum of its choosing (whether that be in federal court or an SEC administrative proceeding), the choice of which was not required to be disclosed prior to the action being brought. It can no longer forum shop.

TriBar Releases Report on Digital Asset Opinions Under UCC Article 12

June 24, 2024

The official drafting committees of the Uniform Commercial Code have promulgated proposed amendments (the “2022 Amendments”) to address transactions with certain digital assets, notably adding a new Article 12 on Controllable Electronic Records.  As the 2022 Amendments are slowly enacted by states, one key question finance lawyers and their clients need to address is how to adapt current legal opinion practice for the 2022 Amendments in real-world transactions.
