Seventh Circuit Agrees: No Revival Of Time-Barred Claims

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit is the latest court to hold that the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002, which extended the statute of limitations for federal securities fraud actions, did not revive previously time-barred claims. In Foss v. Bear, Stearns & Co., Inc., 2005 WL 43724 (7th Cir. Jan 11, 2005), the court found the Second Circuit's recent decision in the Enterprise Mortgage case (posted about here) "persuasive" on this issue and noted that it had "nothing to add."
