Securities Litigation Year in Review 2013

01/28/2014

The Haynes and Boone Securities Litigation Year in Review 2013 outlines recent (and upcoming) Supreme Court decisions as well as notable rulings from federal courts of appeal and district courts in the past year that affect private securities litigation, including the areas of class certification, loss causation, scienter, duty to disclose, pleading falsity, preemption, standing and statutes of limitations. The Review also discusses government enforcement cases and trends, and key state law rulings in shareholder derivative and fiduciary litigation.

In 2013, Haynes and Boone's had a diverse docket of securities and shareholder litigation matters: We won an affirmance of a dismissed minority shareholder suit in the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals. We continued to defend public companies, directors and acquirors in a number of M&A-related suits, including the defeat of an attempted preliminary injunction. We obtained dismissals of shareholder derivative litigation in Texas state court and a Section 11 class action in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Texas. We also advised companies, boards and special committees on annual meetings, shareholder demand letters, and a variety of other disclosure and fiduciary matters. The firm was honored to be recognized in BTI Consulting Group's Litigation Outlook 2013 in the area of Securities and Finance Related litigation.
