Rule 102--Integrity and Objectivity--provides that "a member shall not knowingly misrepresent facts."

The application of Rule 501--Acts Discreditable-- to a member who has been involved with the preparation of false and misleading financial statements has been unclear in the past. Such a member may state that he was unaware that ...
