Haan on NAM v. SEC

Sarah Haan has an interesting post on Balkination about D.C. Circuit's rehearing of NAM v. SEC, the 2014 case in which the court threw out part of the SEC’s Conflict Minerals Rule on First Amendment grounds.  The post addresses the issue in the case:  Can the D.C.

Koehler on the FCPA and SEC Forum Selection

Mike Koehler has an interesting post on the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act on the FCPA Professor Blog.  The post discusses how the SEC determines whether as a civil action in federal court or an SEC administrative proceeding.  It's well worth a read.
