Golden Gate University Law Review


Noelle Matteson


This Comment will examine the background and development of protection for forward-looking statements through the SEC, the courts and Congress. Following this background examination, Part III will focus on the recently passed Reform Act. This discussion will consider the arguments made by opponents and proponents of the Reform Act, the effects of this act and whether it is encouraging disclosure by issuers and protecting the same issuers from frivolous lawsuits.
