Professor Joseph A. Grundfest is quoted in The New York Times in an article about Apple C.E.O. Steve Jobs' well-being and how the state of his well-being affects securities laws:

Joseph A. Grundfest, a professor of law and business at Stanford Law School and a former member of the Securities and Exchange Commission, said there was little agreement among legal scholars about the responsibilities of a company when its chief executive became ill.

“Among the arguments that are made is that the C.E.O. has certain privacy rights,” Mr. Grundfest said. “The counterargument to that is there is nothing in federal securities laws about privacy rights.”
