Judge: Deloitte Can Handle Two Chinese-related Court Cases Just Fine

Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu CPA Ltd. lost a bid to delay a lawsuit brought by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission seeking documents in an investigation of the auditor’s former client Longtop Financial Technologies Ltd. U.S. District Judge Gladys Kessler in Washington today rejected Shanghai-based Deloitte’s argument that the case should be put on hold while an administrative judge considers a separate case the regulator brought against the China-based affiliates of the Big Four accounting firms. “There is no significant burden placed on Deloitte by requiring it to litigate these two very different proceedings simultaneously,” Kessler said.
