The Corporate Law Forum congratulates Alex J. Sellinger, Senior Articles Editor, Fordham Journal of Corporate & Financial Law (Vol. XV), for his prescient analysis in Backdoor Bailout Disclosure: Must the Federal Reserve Disclose the Identities of its Borrowers Under The Freedom of Information Act?, 15 Fordham J. Corp. & Fin. L. 259 (2009). On March 21, 2011, The U.S. Supreme Court affirmed a federal appeals court order that The Federal Reserve Bank disclose the details of emergency loans made to commercial banks in 2008, thereby endorsing the conclusion in Alex’s note that “…SCLF (special credit and liquidity facilities) disclosure is compelled by the FOIA (Freedom of Information Act).”
