Hosted by Squire Patton Boggs
This week on Capital Thinking with Kevin O’Neill talks we examine the latest congressional action in the financial services arena. We will delve into the sitting of electric transmission projects to transmit renewable energy, as well as compliance with FERC rules on energy trading and reliability with guests Debbie Swanstrom, Lodie White and Meredith Jolivert from Patton Boggs. Defense attorney Christina Sarchio walks us through how she helped persuade a federal judge to throw out a jury conviction against two Teach Me To Trade salespeople who prosecutors had dubbed “infomercial fraudsters” for selling an educational program that taught people how to trade stocks.
