Law as Source: How the Legal System Facilitates Investigative Journalism

* IDC Law School. I thank participants in the Information in Litigation Roundtable at Washington & Lee, the Annual Corporate and Securities Litigation Workshop at UCLA, several conferences at IDC, the American Law and Economics Association annual conference at Boston University, and the Crisis in the Theory of the Firm conference and the Annual Reputation Symposium at Oxford University, as well as Jonathan Glater, James Hamilton, Andrew Tuch, and Verity Winship for helpful comments and discussions. Bernat Nasca and Dor Marinovsky provided excellent research assistance. Parts of this project were written while I was a fellow at the Stigler Center at the Booth School of Business at the University of Chicago, and I thank the Center for financial assistance.
