Conferees on financial reform reject Stoneridge amendment



From Reuters, "(Reuters) - Senators on Wednesday beat back a House measure giving shareholders the power to sue third parties such as banks and accountants not directly involved in securities fraud."

Sen. Chris Dodd (D-CT) instead won support for a GAO study of securities fraud and the effects of the Stoneridge v. Scientific Atlanta ruling. See also Dow-Jones, earlier POL post.
