Morgan Keegan Fallout Affects Directors Everywhere

News summary by MFWire's editors

Fund firms are going to have a tough time getting people to serve in the board room thanks to the SEC's case against Morgan Keegan directors, according to the Wall Street Journal.

John Morley, a law professor at the University of Virginia, says the case could have a "significant impact" on the willingness of people to be mutual-fund directors.
