SCOTUScast 6-15-09 featuring Steven Calabresi

Free Enterprise Fund v. Public Company Accounting Oversight Board
Featuring Steven G. Calabresi
June 15, 2009

On Wednesday, May 20, the Supreme Court granted certiorari in Free Enterprise Fund v. Public Company Accounting Oversight Board. In this special cert grant episode of SCOTUScast, we take a look ahead to this important case that the Supreme Court will hear during its October 2009 Term. In this case, the Supreme Court will consider whether the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 unconstitutionally violated the separation of powers or the appointments clause by granting the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board far-reaching executive power and having its members appointed by the Securities and Exchange Commission and removable only for cause. Northwestern University Law Professor and Federalist Society co-founder Steven Calabresi discusses the case.
