SECONDARY SOURCES ON BLUE SKY LAWS

"Blue sky laws" are state laws prohibiting fraudulent sales practices in connection with securities. The phrase comes from the opinion in Hall v. Geiger-Jones Co., 242 U.S. 539 (1917), when Justice McKenna described “speculative schemes which have no more basis than so many feet of ‘blue sky.”
