Survey Article


This Article surveys significant cases decided by the United States Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit during 1995 and 1996 in the field of securities regulation. This Article also examines select Supreme Court decisions and Congressional enactments during this survey period that affect Eleventh Circuit precedent.

The most significant development during this survey period was the enactment of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Because the legislation affects a number of historical precedents and implements substantial changes in the area of securities regulation, this survey must begin with that Act.
