Murray Quoted on Conflict Minerals Rule

17 November 2015 Compliance Week News

Compliance Week

Senior Counsel Frank Murray was quoted in a Compliance Week article, “SEC’s Next Move on Conflict Minerals Could Open a Pandora’s Box,” on November 17, 2015. The article discussed possible next steps for the Securities and Exchange Commission related to its Conflict Minerals Rule. Murray noted the Conflict Minerals Rule has the potential to set precedent for advancing social or political agendas through rulemaking and was quoted saying, “You have a possibility that the Supreme Court could weigh in again on some of these commercial speech issues. It is not a concern about misleading anyone [as past restrictions on commercial speech have focused on], it is more a concern about trying to stigmatize companies and advance policy goals through the concept of disclosure.”
