Mar. 10, 2010) (en banc), the United States Court of Appeals for the First Circuit, sitting en banc, vacated the three-judge panel’s prior holding and affirmed the district court’s dismissal of a Rule 10b-5 claim asserted by the Securities & Exchange Commission (“SEC”) against defendants James Tambone and Robert Hussey.
