Professor Page's Scholarship Cited in Mass. Supreme Court Case on First Amendment Rights and Securities Regulation
On January 6, the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court heard Bulldog Investors General v. Secretary of the Commonwealth. The case concerns whether a particular securities regulation violates the First Amendment. Leading constitutional law expert, Harvard Law Professor Lawrence Tribe, argued on behalf of the defendants. At oral argument he cited Professor Antony Page's article (Taking Stock of the First Amendment's Application to Securities Regulation, http://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cfm?abstract_id=1051101 ) in which Page argued that the First Amendment should fully apply to securities regulation, and that most would survive such scrutiny.
