Second Circuit Appoints Attorney to Argue in Support of Judge Rakoff's Position in SEC v. Citigroup

The Second Circuit appointed John R. Wing, Esq., of Lankler Siffert & Wohl, as counsel "to argue in support of the district court's position" in the appeal of SEC v. Citigroup.  Mr. Wing was recommended by Jed Rakoff.  (Although deciding only procedural issues, the Second Circuit last week expressed no support for Judge Rakoff's view of the scope of judicial review of an SEC settlement.)

According to his firm's website, Mr. Wing, for more than 25 years, has been actively involved in criminal trial, pretrial and appellate work, representing clients charged with, or under investigation for, violations involving securities, tax, antitrust, labor, environmental, fraud, bribery, money laundering and RICO laws.  Mr. Wing is a Fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers and past President and Director of the New York Council of Defense Lawyers.  Mr. Wing has published and lectured extensively on jury trial work and criminal law topics and has taught trial advocacy courses at a number of law schools.
