Jay A. Dubow, a partner with Pepper Hamilton, a member of the firm’s White Collar Litigation and Investigations Practice Group and a co-chair of the Securities and Financial Services Enforcement Group, was quoted in the December 23, 2016 Philadelphia Inquirer article, "SEC Pushes Investor to Repay Philly Pensioners, as He Faces Prison."
“We don’t believe the SEC has established that Mr. Liberty was not truthful,” one of his lawyers, Jay Dubow, of the Pepper Hamilton firm in Philadelphia, told me. “We may file something in response.”
Dubow also represented Liberty, a Florida resident, when he pleaded guilty Nov. 28 in federal court in his native Maine to accusations of campaign finance fraud for illegally funneling $21,500 above his legal donor limit to Mitt Romney, the Republican Presidential candidate, during the 2012 primaries. More from the Portland Press Herald here, from the Bangor News here.
Dubow says that plea won’t affect Liberty’s fight against the SEC’s attempt to get him to pay $5.4 million it agreed to let slide when it thought Liberty couldn’t afford it, plus unspecified interest and damages.
