I’d like to update D&O Discourse readers on our companion blog, D&O Developments, launched last spring.
As a reminder, D&O Developments primarily reports and digests published appellate decisions in Private Securities Litigation Reform Act cases. D&O Developments complements D&O Discourse, which provides monthly in-depth opinion on key issues of law and practice in the world of securities and corporate governance litigation.
Various members of our Securities Litigation Practice Group contribute pieces to D&O Developments. Over the past quarter, my colleagues have published many helpful posts:
- Taylor Washburn, “First Circuit Holds that Scienter Requires Knowledge That Non-Disclosure Risked Misleading Investors, Not Just Knowledge of Omitted Facts, in Brennan v. Zafgen, Inc. (April 7, 2017)”
- Bret Finkelstein, “Ninth Circuit Applies Omnicare Standard for Pleading False Statements of Opinion to Section 10(b) Claims, in City of Dearborn Heights v. Align Technology (May 5, 2017)”
- Vamshi Reddy, “First Circuit Affirms Dismissal of Biogen Investors’ Claims, Finding a Lack of ‘Connecting Detail,’ in In re Biogen Inc. Securities Litigation, 857 F.3d 34 (May 12, 2017)”
- Peter Hawkes, “Ninth Circuit Extends American Pipe Tolling to Subsequent Class Actions, in Resh v. China Agritech, Inc. (May 24, 2017)”
- Peter Hawkes, “The Supreme Court Holds that the Securities Act’s Statute of Repose Is Not Subject to American Pipe Tolling, in CalPERS v. ANZ Securities (June 26, 2017)”
- Jessica Walder, “No ‘Extreme Departure’ From the Classical Materiality Standard for Omissions: Second Circuit Rejects First Circuit Test for Material Omissions in Registration Statements, in Stadnick v. Vivint Solar, Inc. (June 21, 2017)”
In addition, Bret Finkelstein and I wrote an article for Washington Legal Foundation’s Legal Pulse blog about the Align Technology decision:
- “From Sea to Shining Sea: The Ninth Circuit Aligns with the Second Circuit in Affirming Omnicare Decision’s Benefits for Securities-Suit Targets“
