Securities/Commodities/Exchange Civil Filings Jump 43%

“The latest available data from the federal courts show that during March 2014 the government reported a 43 percent jump in new securities/commodities/exchange civil filings. According to the case-by-case information analyzed by the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC), there were 93 new filings in March, up from 65 in February. It is too soon to tell whether this was a one-time increase, or marks the end of a general decline in filings that has occurred over the last 18 months. Suits in this category involve alleged violations of the Securities and Exchange Act (15 USC 78), securities fraud under 15 USC 77 and 12 USC 22, violations of commodities exchange regulations and other breaches of fiduciary duties. The full report, including a five-year timeline and top district rankings, is here.
