Beyond Basic: Supreme Court’s Halliburton Ruling Strengthens Defenses in Securities Fraud Class Actions

15 Jul 2014 12:00 p.m. - 01:00 p.m. EDT

On June 23, 2014 the Supreme Court issued its ruling in Halliburton Co. v. Erica P. John Fund, Inc. The Halliburton case produced unprecedented expectations for those involved in securities litigation. Some predicted the end of securities class actions. Instead of bringing an end to securities class actions, the Halliburton decision will enable securities class actions to continue, but with an additional check in the form of rigorous price-impact review at class certification.

Partners Jordan Eth and Mark Foster will discuss the following:

  • The Basic Premise
  • “Price Impact”
  • Reinvigorated Challenges to the Presumption of Reliance
