The following digest of decisions presents a consolidated summary of the case headnotes arranged alphabetically according to topic headings. The digest is divided into five parts: * Part I, containing decisions under the Securities Act of 1933; Part II, the Securites Exchange Act of 1934; Part III, the Public Utility Holding Company Act of 1935; and Part IV, the Investment Company Act of 1940.
The case headnotes have not been carried over verbatim into this digest. To facilitate the grouping together of decisions standing for a similar proposition under a single digest heading, it has been necessary in some cases to delete from the headnotes all matter not pertinent to the general proposition for which the headnote stood, i. e., the names of companies, the principal amounts of security issues, etc. To the same end, certain case headnotes have been entirely redrafted for the digest so as to conform to a uniform statement of the general proposition. In a few instances, case headnotes, which were not considered important for the purposes of this digest, have been omitted from the digest altogether.
*During the period covered by this volume there were no opinions containing case headnotes under the Trust Indenture Act of 1939, or the Investment Advisers Act of 1940.
