Here’s our latest edition of our monthly feature – a quick snapshot of recent developments:

  1. As we recently blogged, there seems to be a development in the litigation filed over the SEC’s new climate rules every few days. The latest is that the two companies that filed the lawsuit in the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals that resulted in a temporary stay granted by a three-judge panel in that court have now filed a request for a new administrative stay and a stay pending judicial review in the 8th Circuit, where the group of lawsuits over the SEC’s rules has been consolidated (as noted in this blog).

    The 5th Circuit temporary stay was lifted when the lawsuits were consolidated in the 8th Circuit.
  2. Here is our Client Update on the SEC’s new climate disclosure rules. It includes some great graphics so you can understand the rules at a glance. Check it out!
  3. We’ve started a series of blogs breaking down the SEC’s new climate rules in detail. Our first blog is about “Item 1502(a)’s Climate-Related Risks.”
  4. Here is our second blog in that series – this blog is about “Item 1502(b)’s Material Impacts on Strategy, Business Model and Outlook.”
  5. In this blog, we broke down 6 things to know about the impact of the SEC’s climate rules on IPO prospectuses.
  6. Here’s a blog that highlights eight items that changed from the SEC’s proposal to its final climate rules.
  7. This blog provides some quick highlights of things you need to know about the SEC’s climate rules. This blog lays out how the rules become effective on May 28th (but that date doesn’t impact the various compliance dates).
  8. The DOJ announced a whistleblower rewards program that is intended to fill gaps in other whistleblower programs, like the SEC’s.
