From Tambone to Matrixx: Recent Decisions that Every Securities Litigator Should Know

Wednesday, June 8, 2011 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM
Boston Bar Association - 16 Beacon Street, Boston, MA


Description:

From the First Circuit's en banc decision in Tambone interpreting the reach of Rule 10b-5(b) to the Supreme Court's ruling in Matrixx rejecting a bright-line statistical significance test for materiality, the Supreme Court and the First Circuit recently have issued decisions that address issues central to the practice of securities litigators. Jordan D. Hershman of Bingham McCutchen, hot off his motion to dismiss win for Freddie Mac in its New York class action, will review and share his thoughts on the Tambone and Matrixx decisions, as well as other recent Supreme Court and First Circuit securities rulings.
