Congressional Civil Justice Caucus Academy Briefing, Tenth Anniversary of Sarbanes-Oxley: Persistent Civil Justice Issues
Event Date: Monday, July 30 to Monday, July 30, 2012
Location: Rayburn House Office Building, Washington, DC
Program Description: Enacted on July 29, 2002, the Sarbanes–Oxley Act was intended to reduce accounting fraud, increase accountability, and boost reporting standards for public companies, management and accounting firms. The Act was passed in large part to prevent a reoccurrence of the corporate and accounting scandals in 2001 and 2002. Ten years on, has the Act succeeded in these goals? What types of civil litigation have arisen due to the passage of the Act?
