Judge Holwell, Justice McGuire, and Dan Sullivan Featured in Compliance Week Podcast on the Supreme Court’s Oral Arguments in Salman v. United States
New York—On October 5, the Supreme Court heard oral arguments in a key insider trading case: Salman v. United States. This marks the first time the justices have tackled an insider trading dispute in almost two decades.
The Hon. Richard Holwell, Justice Jim McGuire, and Daniel Sullivan spoke with Compliance Week about the case, what it means for enforcement efforts by the Securities and Exchange Commission, and what the late Justice Scalia, a longtime advocate of clarity in the drafting of criminal statutes and a skeptic of broad assertions of prosecutorial authority under unclear statutes, might have made of the case.
