Their Honors will hear argument on October 9 in Stoneridge Investment v. Scientific-Atlanta, Inc., No. 06-43 (U.S.).  The case concerns whether securities fraud liability reaches silent collaborators. "Questions Presented" here.

Blawgletter talked in August about the Solicitor General’s split-the-baby approach to the Stoneridge questions and the possible effect of Stoneridge on a Fifth Circuit decision favoring Enron’s investment bankers.

A few days ago, the Chief Justice un-recused himself from the case.

NOTE:  A big thanky to The Office Goat for pointing out that we got the argument date a tad early the first time.  And sorry for the heart attack, Mr. TOG.
