Amendments to NASD Code of Arbitration Procedure Rules 10335 and 10205(h) Relating to Injunctive Relief

The NASD, through its wholly owned subsidiary, NASD Regulation, Inc., is filing with the SEC a proposed rule change to amend NASD Rules 10335 and 10205 of the NASD's Code of Arbitration Procedure to simplify and expedite the procedures for seeking immediate injunctive relief in intra-industry disputes and to fairly and effectively integrate court-ordered initial injunctive relief with the arbitration of the underlying claims in the same disputes.
