This Note explores the history and legacy of NAND settlements, the likely motives for the SEC's recent changes to its NAND policy, the potential short- and long-term effects of the changes, and recommends further policy measures that the SEC may adopt to alleviate public and judicial scrutiny of NAND.
E.3d 1232, 1235 (2017), a third-party bad faith case, the Supreme Judicial Court of Massachusetts held that in a bad-faith case in which a judgment was already recovered on the bad-faith claims, interest on that judgment is not tripled under Massachusetts law: We conclude that in a case where the amount of actual damages to be multiplied due to a wilful or knowing violation of G.
10 The SEC's proposed NAND consent decree11 called for Bank of America to pay a million fine and refrain "from making future false statements in proxy [statements]."12Judge Rakoff found the SEC's proposed NAND settlement unacceptable for at least three reasons. of the truth."20 He then denied the consent decree, set a trial date, and told the parties to prepare to litigate the case.21Later, in SEC v.
First, the victims-Bank of America's shareholders who had been misled to the tune of .8 billion-would pay a million fine as a penalty for their own victimization.13 He questioned why the SEC did not seek a penalty against the lawyers who drafted the proxy statements instead.14Second, Judge Rakoff criticized one of the key elements of NAND settlements-the SEC's request for injunctive relief.15 Bank of America submitted statements to the court claiming that the allegedly false proxy statement was "totally in accordance with the law."16 Given Bank of America's position that the proxy statements were lawful, Judge Rakoff called injunctive relief "pointless."17 If the defendant believed the statements were lawful, and if there were no finding of fact to the contrary, it made no sense to enjoin Bank of America from making similar lawful statements, which it would be free to make again in the future.18Judge Rakoff concluded by pointing to what he called a "cynical relationship" between the SEC and Bank of America.19 A relationship where the parties were willing to shift the burden of the defendant's alleged wrongdoing to the victim-shareholders, and where the SEC would claim a hollow victory (a NAND settlement) at the "expense . Bank of America (Bank of America II),22 Judge Rakoff begrudgingly approved a revised consent decree which addressed some of the concerns he expressed in Bank of America I,23 but he called the final result "half-baked justice at best."24 Judge Rakoff stated that if he were considering the case de novo, he "would reject the settlement as inadequate and misguided."25 Although Judge Rakoff did not directly criticize NAND settlements in Bank of America I or II, these cases set the tone for a clash that would culminate in the SEC's changes to its NAND regime.
