SEC Inspector General report finds no evidence of ALJ bias

Bruce Carton | February 17, 2016

As previously discussed here, the allegation surfaced in a May 6, 2015 article in The Wall Street Journal ("SEC Wins With In-House Judges") in which former ALJ Lillian McEwen claimed that during her time as an ALJ, the SEC's chief ALJ Brenda Murray "questioned my loyalty to the SEC” for finding too often in favor of defendants.
