In August, 2011, Brown commented on NPR about the SEC's destruction of documents related to dropped investigations. Brown was quoted as saying, "My initial take on this is it's a tempest in a teapot.... What appears to be going on here is the SEC would look at a matter, decide not to bring a case and largely purge the file of documents."[2]
