The law surrounding false statements is developing rapidly and expansively, the most recent example of which is the rule proposed by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, which would give it wide discretion in enforcing its duty of candor. At the same time, the CFTC is increasing enforcement pursuant to its false statement authority. This webinar will address the metes and bounds of false statement law – for clients and lawyers alike – under the Commodity Exchange Act and practice before the CFTC, as well as practice before the SEC and Department of Justice, and in comparison to FERC’s new proposed rule.
