Macquarie Infrastructure Corp. v. Moab Partners, LP

Corporations are required to disclose information about trends and uncertainties under a federal regulation known as Item 303. Here, Macquarie Infrastructure allegedly concealed investment risk information about international rules largely eliminating the shipping of certain high-sulfur fuels, a material change to a major part of its infrastructure investments that required disclosure under Item 303. Moab Partners is suing them for omitting this risk disclosure under the Securities Exchange Act – which prohibits deceptive practices and manipulating investors. The Supreme Court will now decide whether to let companies off the hook for securities fraud if they fail to comply with the requirements of Item 303.
