William J. Reilly, a New York attorney residing in Boca Raton, Florida, is suspended from practicing as an attorney before the Securities and Exchange. Judge Donald M. Middlebrooks of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida entered a judgment on April 16, 2012, enforcing an order entered by the Securities and Exchange Commission.
The judgment finds that on October 27, 2009 the SEC suspended Reilly from appearing or practicing as an attorney before the SEC, with the right to apply for reinstatement after three years. In the Matter of William J. Reilly, Esq., Admin. Proc. 3-13666 (Oct. 27, 2009). The judgment further finds that a registration statement on Form S-8 filed with the SEC on June 21, 2011 incorporated as an exhibit a legal opinion letter signed by Reilly. By this conduct, Reilly knowingly violated the terms of the order suspending him from appearing or practicing before the SEC as an attorney.
The judgment entered by the court under Section 21(e) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 requires Reilly to comply with the SEC order. [SEC v. William J. Reilly, 9:11-CV-81322-DMM (S.D. Fla.)] (LR-22336)
