1. The Commission will hear oral argument on an appeal by Edgar B. Alacan (“Alacan”), a former registered representative of J.W. Barclay & Co., Inc., a former broker-dealer, from the decision of an administrative law judge.

Among the issues likely to be argued are:
a. Whether the evidence supports the law judge's findings that Alacan violated the antifraud provisions;
b. Whether and to what extent sanctions should be imposed in the public interest.
The subject matter for the closed meeting scheduled for Tuesday, June 15, 2004, will be: Post-argument discussion.
The subject matter for the closed meeting scheduled for Thursday, June 17, 2004, will be: Formal orders of investigation; Institution and settlement of injunctive actions; Institution and settlement of administrative proceedings of an enforcement nature; Litigation matter; and Amici.
