In the report, President Seligman expresses concern about any new limits
on the ability of people to sue companies over accounting, saying it
could "handicap the ability of the SEC to be a vigilant watchdog.
. . . To have this occur, so soon after the dramatic increase in fraud
that led to Sarbanes-Oxley, would be deeply troublesome."

by researchers at Carnegie Mellon University."
