Securities Litigation 2015 Year in Review

02/18/2016

Each year our Year in Review comments on significant securities-related decisions by the Supreme Court, federal appellate courts and district courts, notes key developments in SEC enforcement, and summarizes significant rulings in state law fiduciary litigation against directors and officers of public companies.

In 2015 our team spent the year winning cases at trial and representing clients in securities, fiduciary duty and SEC enforcement matters. Among other highlights, in March we obtained a complete victory after a two week trial and broke the SEC’s winning streak in cases before an Administrative Law Judge; we represented the Board of AT&T in shareholder litigation; we are company counsel in the SEC investigation related to the indictment of the Texas Attorney General; we are defending shareholder derivative claims in Delaware challenging the fairness of an oil and gas transaction; and we helped companies and executives avoid SEC enforcement charges.

Outside the securities context, our lawyers also successfully defended the National Football League in a jury trial against fraud claims brought by Super Bowl XLV ticketholders and helped win a sweeping trial victory in a federal civil rights class action on behalf of 12,000 Texas children in long-term foster care.

If you have any questions about the issues covered in this 2015 Review, or about our practice, please let us know. We look forward to working with our friends and clients in 2016.
