ABSTRACT
The article reports that the U.S. Supreme Court has considered an appeal by an investment group against two cable set-top box vendors that they allege aided Charter Communications in an accounting scandal in 2000. The case, which was previously dismissed by the federal district court of Missouri, has gained new life after the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals in an unrelated case ruled. Unrelated ruling stated that secondary parties in fraud schemes can sometime be held liable.
