Co-Author, "Below Investment Grade and Above the Law: A Past, Present and Future Look at the Accountability of Credit Rating Agencies," Fordham Journal of Corporate & Financial Law, 2012.
A timely and comprehensive article focusing on the responsibility, and lack thereof, of the credit rating agencies (“CRAs”). The article is titled “below investment grade” due to the shoddy performance of the CRAs for their key role in the financial crisis of 2007-08. It is also titled “above the law” because of the CRAs’ lack of accountability due to regulatory sleight of hand and the CRAs’ almost totally successful defense against liability to bondholders through the invocation of the Freedom of Speech under the First Amendment.
