Zum Vortragsthema:
In 2010, the United States Supreme Court addressed for the first time the applicability of American antifraud law to foreign securities transactions.  Discarding the jurisdictional tests that had been developed by the lower courts, the Court adopted a new standard based on the location of the investment transaction.

In this talk, Professor Buxbaum will discuss the Morrison case and its aftermath.  The talk will touch on some of the cases that have followed Morrison – for example, the multi-billion dollar lawsuit brought by hedge funds against Porsche, which was thrown out by a federal district court in 2010 but is currently on appeal – and will explore whether any remedies remain available in the United States to foreign investors harmed by securities fraud.

Der Vortrag findet in englischer Sprache statt. Die Teilnahme ist kostenfrei.

Im Anschluß an den Vortrag besteht anläßlich eines Umtrunks die Gelegenheit, in einem informellen Rahmen die Diskussion fortzusetzen. Die DAJV dankt der Sozietät Weitnauer für die freundliche Unterstützung.
