The purpose of this note is to examine the judicial interpretation of the Williams Amendments to the Securities Exchange Act. The background of the legislation is outlined to direct attention to its general purpose and to isolate its intended beneficiaries.' A discussion of the actual amendments will provide the informational base necessary for consideration of the recent cases. The critical discussion of the first few cases interpreting the amendments provides the foundation for a suggested approach in applying the available remedies to violators of the Williams Amendments.
