Excerpt from SEC Changes Course:

"The Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) has changed its policy concerning “no admit, no deny” settlements to require admissions of misconduct in some settlements. SEC officials have attributed the change to the public’s demand for acceptance of responsibility and accountability in some enforcement cases. While the SEC will continue its traditional practice of entering into no admit, no deny settlements, the SEC will now require some settlements to include admissions of misconduct."
