On June 5, 2017, the U.S. Supreme Court unanimously ruled in Kokesh v. SEC that disgorgement of ill-gotten gains by a defendant in a Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) action is a penalty subject to the five-year statute of limitations provision in 28 U.S.C. § 2462. The impact of this decision may well be far-reaching, and will significantly affect investigations and enforcement efforts and practices by the SEC and other federal financial regulators. At the same time, Kokesh has provided some powerful arguments to defendants against disgorgement and other remedies in SEC and other government proceedings.
In a live webcast, a panel of thought leaders and practitioners assembled by The Knowledge Group will discuss the Supreme Court decision in Kokesh v. SEC and its significant impact on SEC enforcement actions and other financial regulatory investigations.
Key issues that will be covered in this course are:
– Overview of 28 U.S.C § 2462
– Supreme Court Decision in Kokesh v. SEC
– Significant Implications for Federal Financial Regulators
– Implications for Disgorgement in Ongoing Investigations
– Impact on Other Sanctions
– Other Expected Challenges
