High Court's Fraud Case Widely Seen as Stand-In for Enron

The largest corporate frauds in recent history could not have happened without the brainpower of accountants, bankers and lawyers who partnered with executives at the troubled firms. Often, these third-party businesses are the only wealthy sources left for investors to tap after such schemes unravel in massive collapse.

That's why Robert Van Der Volgen, whose pension fund invests the retirement savings of 750,000 teachers, says the outcome of a dispute to be heard by the Supreme Court on Tuesday will help determine nothing less than the integrity of the financial system.

Stoneridge Investment Partners v. Scientific-Atlanta
 
Stoneridge, which will be heard by the Supreme Court on October 9, poses the question of whether third parties, such as lawyers, can be sued by private investors if they participate in a fraudulent scheme with a company. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit ruled that they cannot be subject to this “scheme liability” under section 10b-5 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 unless they make a public statement about the targeted activity.
