Ronald J. Colombo, Associate Dean for Academic Affairs and Professor of Law

Professor Ronald J. Colombo joined other securities and corporate law professors in signing an amicus brief submitted in the Supreme Court case Matrixx v. Siracusano. The amici urge the Court to affirm the Ninth Circuit’s interpretation of materiality under the securities laws (as applied to questions of drug safety), and to reject a bright-line statistical threshold urged by the Petitioners.
