Superstar Judges as Entrepreneurs: The Untold Story of Fraud-on-the-Market
Margaret V. Sachs
This Article unites two disparate subjects of profound interest to legal scholars. One is fraud-on-the-market, reaffirmed late last term in Erica P. John Fund, Inc. v. Halliburton Co. (Halliburton II). Probably the most important claim in the securities litigation universe, fraud-on-the-market is the sine qua non of almost every securities class action that is filed. The other subject consists of the judicial opinions of Judges Frank Easterbrook and Richard Posner, the “superstars” of the current federal appellate bench.
