How do you cite the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 in MLA format?

Sarbanes-Oxley Act. Pub. L. 107-204. 116 Stat. 745-???. July 30, 2002. Print. (or Web. as the case may be for you).
I used the rule on the MLA Style Manual page 233 for Acts, and Wikipedia for the act info, which you might be able to verify this information as you have actually viewed the act and I have not.
In text, cite it using the title of the act, but see Wiki for alternative names it apparently has. You should use the abbreviated name, SOX, if you are writing for a legal audience; if it is not for a legal audience then use the full name. And MLA stipulates - Do not italicise act titles or enclose them in quotation marks in text or in Works Cited. So in or out of parentheses, it's just Sarbanes-Oxley Act, or the short form if appropriate. Refer to the section number rather than page, eg. (SOX. Sec. 10).
