Professor Jena Martin Publishes Commentary on Facebook and the SEC with The Conversation

West Virginia University College of Law professor Jena Martin recently posted commentary at The Conversation on Facebook about potential action by the SEC based on public statements by Mark Zuckerberg that contradict the company's internal documents. The issue in controversy is Facebook's enforcement on its policy for offensive material. Zuckerberg's public statements indicate that all Facebook users are on equal footing with regard to application of the policy while internal documents suggest otherwise. Professor Martin offers expert commentary as a scholar and former enforcement attorney with the SEC. The article is titled "Why Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg may be in hot water with the SEC".
