Tom Potter Featured in Law360‘s “Halted SEC Case to Spark More In-House Court Challenges”

In an article published by Law360 on June 9, 2015, Tom Potter provides his perspective on this week’s Atlanta Federal Court’s decision in Hill v. the SEC, enjoining administrative insider-trading case as likely unconstitutional.
