Main Content

In Jones v. Harris, the Supreme Court has been asked to clarify the standard for judging whether fees charged by mutual fund advisors are excessive under Section 36(b) of the Investment Company Act of 1940. The case may provide insight into the extent to which the Court will support closer scrutiny of the investment industry in the wake of the financial crisis. David Frederick, a leading Supreme Court litigator at Kellogg, Hube, Hansen, Todd, Evans & Figel in Washington, D.C., will do a practice moot at the Law School in preparation for his Nov. 2 oral argument at the Supreme Court. The distinguished panel will include Professors Jim Cox, Deborah DeMott, Bill Brown, Neil Siegel, and 3L Emily Johnson. For more information, contact Dana Norvell at
