Webinar on Trends in FERC and CFTC

Thu, 02/25/2016
Thomson Reuters will host a complimentary webinar on Thursday, February 25, 2016, from 2:45-3:45 p.m. (EST). Join Bracewell’s Michael Brooks, Bob Pease and Stephen Hug as they review recent developments and litigation of note, including FERC’s recent case against Powhatan Energy Fund, LLC for alleged manipulation of the wholesale market operated by PJM Interconnection, L.L.C., and the CFTC’s action against Kraft Foods for alleged manipulation of the wheat futures and cash markets.
In recent years, both the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission and Commodities Futures Trading Commission have become increasingly aggressive in pursuing enforcement actions against entities that it views as manipulating markets subject to its jurisdiction. The result has been the assessment of larger civil penalties against entities that find themselves in the crosshairs of these agencies and record levels of litigation involving the scope of these agencies’ manipulation authority.
