The Securities and Exchange Commission said it would rehear dozens of cases recently brought before its in-house judges, in response to the Supreme Court’s ruling that the judges had not been properly appointed.
Lawyers for the commission said in a court filing late Wednesday that the agency had reaffirmed the appointments of the same five administrative law judges who had been hearing cases before it put a stay in place in June. The filing ended the stay and said that any pending cases would be reheard by a different in-house judge.
