Morgan Stanley: “With Thanksgiving”


Ed. Note-we conclude our two week guest series of posts from our colleague Mary Jones with today’s look at the Morgan Stanley declination to prosecute. I want to take this opportunity to thank Mary for her hard and great work and hope that you have found her posting useful for your compliance practice. I know I have found them useful for mine.

It seems fitting that we end this series the week before Thanksgiving Day on a positive note. (Well, perhaps not so positive for Garth Peterson, but certainly one for Morgan Stanley) In an unusual move, the DOJ and SEC charged Garth Peterson with violations of the FCPA, but declined to bring any actions against Morgan Stanley.
