What rule/s do you think were needed to prevent this fraud and/or scandal?

Case Study Doing a research project for our course project to analyze the effectiveness of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002. I want you to research for accounting fraud and/or scandals that happened after 2010. You must find a publicly traded company on either NYSE or NASDAQ

that been charged by the SEC for accounting fraud. The Research Project will consist of three parts: 1. Introduction to the Case Study. Here you will introduce the company and the accounting fraud and/or scandal that took place. You will include details as to the impact of the fraud and/or scandal to investors. 2. SEC Charge and Ruling. Describe in your own words the was the formal charge made by the SEC. What did the SEC

say were the facts of the case? What was the official ruling of the case, for example what were the penalties, punishments, and/or remediations made against the company? 3. Did Sarbanes-Oxley impact the Case? After you have reviewed the SEC ruling: a. What are the specific rules in SOX that applied to this case? Do you think the company’s internal controls failed to prevent this fraud and/or scandal from happening, and how

so? b. Or are there no rules in SOX that could have prevented this accounting fraud and/or scandal from happening? What rule/s do you think were needed to prevent this fraud and/or scandal? Rubric You will put together the Research Project in a word document, 12-point font, double spaced. You will need to follow MLA format for referencing your paper. The paper is to be between 3 to a maximum of 5 pages, this means at least 3-4 paragraphs for every question. Please include a MLA formated Works Cited at the end of your document.
