Circuit’’), challenging the Commission’s Approval Order as inconsistent with the Exchange Act and lacking in the reasoned decisionmaking required by the Administrative Procedure Act. The D.C. Circuit concluded that the Approval Order did not ‘‘represent the kind of reasoned decisionmaking required by either the Exchange Act or the Administrative Procedure Act,’’ and therefore remanded the case to the Commission for further proceedings.3 In so ruling, the court did not reach the merits of any of petitioners’ arguments that the Plan was inconsistent with the substantive requirements of the Exchange Act.4 The court specifically decided not to vacate the Approval Order prior to remand, instead leaving the Plan in place and remanding ‘‘to give the SEC an opportunity to properly evaluate the Plan.’’ 5 The D.C. Circuit’s mandate, which issued on August 18, 2017, returned the matter to the Commission for further proceedings. Accordingly, to facilitate the Commission’s further review of the Plan, It is Ordered, that by October 14, 2017, OCC may file any additional statements or information that it considers relevant to the Commission’s reconsideration, including but not limited to information OCC’s board of directors considered in approving the Plan. Furthermore, the Commission is providing other parties and persons thirty days to respond to any additional statements OCC may submit. Accordingly, It is Ordered, that by November 13, 2017, any party or other person may file any additional statement, which may include statements previously submitted or otherwise available, or any new information such party or other person considers relevant. All submissions should refer to File Number SR–OCC–2015–02. The Commission will post submissions on the Commission’s Internet Web site as they are received. Submissions received will be posted without change; the Commission does not edit personal identifying information from submissions.
