The Future of Securities Class Actions After Halliburton II

The New York University Annual Survey of American Law presented its annual symposium on Friday, February 27, 2015. This year’s topic was securities class actions and the US Supreme Court case, Halliburton Co. v. Erica P. John Fund, Inc. (2014). This day-long symposium explored the ways that Halliburton II changed the securities class action landscape, the debate over the role of the Securities and Exchange Commission, and potential legislative action on both the state and federal level. Carter G. Phillips of Sidley Austin was our keynote speaker. Panelists included a former SEC Commissioner, a former Chief of the SEC Enforcement Division’s litigation program, as well as numerous securities law scholars, appellate practice leaders, and securities litigators who have represented either shareholders or corporations.

The symposium addressed the legal and regulatory impact of Halliburton II and the future of securities class actions in the United States. Panelists presented their perspectives on what Halliburton II means for securities class actions, whether the SEC should assert or be granted greater authority, and whether Congress will respond to recent securities law jurisprudence.
