Sachs in "The International Reach of Rule 10b-5: The Myth of Congressional Silence" (28 Colum. J. Trans. L. 677 (1990)). Writing for the Court, Justice Scalia noted that Sachs challenged the assumption on which the prevailing approach rested - namely, that the Congress that enacted the Securities Exchange Act lacked awareness of internationalized securities markets.
