ORDER - Plaintiff United States Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") initiated this litigation against ITT Educational Services, Inc. ("ITT"), Kevin Modany, and Daniel Fitzpatrick in May 2015, alleging that Defendants violated various federal securities laws in connection with two student loan programs created by ITT for ITT students. Specifically, the SEC alleges that when the loan programs exhibited high default rates and ITT's guarantee obligations increased, Defendants engaged in various deceptive acts to conceal the condition of the loan programs and the impact on ITT's financial condition. The SEC and ITT reached a settlement, but claims against Mr. Modany and Mr. Fitzpatrick remain pending. Both the SEC on the one hand, and Mr. Modany and Mr. Fitzpatrick on the other, have filed Motions for Partial Summary Judgment, [Filing No. 225; Filing No. 227], which are now ripe for the Court's decision. For the reasons stated in this Order, the Court GRANTS IN PART and DENIES IN PART the SEC's Motion for Summary Judgment, 225, and GRANTS IN PART and DENIES IN PART Defendants' Motion for Summary Judgment, 227, as discussed herein. Specifically, the Court GRANTS summary judgment on the following claims or issues: That violative acts in connection with statements in the Form 10-Q for the third quarter 2012, the Forms 10-Q for Q1-Q3 2013, and the 2012 Form 10-K, and during conference calls occurred through the use of interstate commerce; that Mr. Modany and Mr. Fitzpatrick are considered control persons for claims related to representations in public filings which they signed; and that the SEC's claim for primary liability for Mr. Modany and Mr. Fitzpatrick under ยง 17(a)(2) of the Securities Act fails as a matter of law. All other claims and issues remain pending for trial. No partial final judgment shall enter at this time. The parties are encouraged and expected to work toward stipulating to as many facts and legal issues as possible in advance of the July 9, 2018 trial. (SEE ORDER). Signed by Judge Jane Magnus-Stinson on 3/23/2018. (APD)
