Rob Jackson, a Democratic Commissioner at the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, said on Thursday he will step down on Feb. 14 to continue teaching at New York University School of Law, where he is currently on faculty leave.
The departure of Jackson, an independent who was picked by Democrats to fill an open Democratic seat in January 2018, will leave Allison Lee as the lone Democratic commissioner at the Republican-led agency that has been pursuing an ambitious agenda to overhaul decades-old securities rules.
