The article reports that lawyers for bond counsel Ira Weiss have sent a federal appeals court a very brief and broad Statement of Issues, that they plan to raise in their appeal of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission's decision. The commission's conclusion that Weiss was negligent in providing a legal opinion that the Township School District notes at issue were non-taxable, in violation of the securities fraud laws, is not in accordance with the law. The firm reacted that the commission's factual findings are not supported by substantial evidence.
