The Marketplace of Ideas: Reflections on Halliburton II

The CLS Blue Sky Blog presents the fourth installment of our series, “The Marketplace of Ideas.” Earlier installments on different topics are available here, here, and here. The intent is to provide different perspectives on the same subject by two or more authors. 

Today, our topic is the Supreme Court’s recent decision in Halliburton Co. v. Erica P. John Fund, Inc. We asked several experts to give their views on the case.

The first comment, Death by One Thousand Cuts, comes from John C. Coffee Jr. of Columbia Law School.

The second comment, The Mist of Halliburton II, comes from James D. Cox of Duke University.

The third comment, Halliburton II: Who Won and Who Lost All Depends on What Defendants Need to Show to Establish No Impact on Price, comes from Merritt B. Fox of Columbia Law School.

The fourth comment, Halliburton II, comes from Richard W. Painter of the University of Minnesota Law School.
