This week the blog will publish a multi-part online symposium on United States v. Texas, a challenge by Texas and twenty-five states to the Obama administration's deferred-action policy for immigration. Contributions to this special feature, as well as an “explainer” by this blog's Lyle Denniston, are available here.

Apollo Group, Inc. v. Policemen’s Annuity and Benefit Fund of Chicago

Petition for certiorari denied on March 7, 2011
Docket No. Op. Below Argument Opinion Vote Author Term
10-649 9th Cir. N/A N/A N/A N/A OT 2010

Issue: 1) Whether a plaintiff, invoking the efficient market theory to avoid having to prove reliance on a misrepresented stock price that caused him loss, is barred from trying to prove loss causation based on a decline in price that happened weeks or months after a corrective disclosure, rather than immediately after the disclosure; and 2) whether a plaintiff may treat an analyst's report that synthesizes and comments on already-public information as a fraud-revealing corrective disclosure that suffices to prove loss causation.
