WASHINGTON (MarketWatch) - Securities and Exchange Commission Chairman Mary Jo White on Tuesday said the agency will seek admissions of wrongdoing in some enforcement cases going forward, partially reversing the agency's predominant practice of allowing companies and individuals to settle lawsuits without admitting or denying allegations. "We are going to, in certain cases, be seeking admissions [of wrongdoing] going forward," she said at a Wall Street Journal event. "I think public accountability in particular kinds of cases can be quite important. If you don't get them, you litigate them." However, she added that the "no admit or deny" approach for enforcement actions will always be a major tool for the SEC. She added that the kinds of cases the agency will evaluate in this area depends on the kind of harm that is done to investors and the level of egregiousness of the fraud. She told reporters after speaking to the conference that these cases would not need to have a criminal component. The co-directors of the enforcement division will be giving guidance on the new approach to agency staff, she said.
