AT&T Inc. Shareholder Derivative Litigation (Elan)

Obtained dismissal of shareholder derivative lawsuit against officers and directors of AT&T Inc. asserting breaches of fiduciary duty under Delaware law related to alleged "cramming" of unauthorized third-party charges. The Court dismissed the claims on the pleadings, without any discovery, based on plaintiffs' failure to adequately plead futility of a pre-suit demand on the board.
