Motion To Dismiss Filed In The AOL Time Warner Case

The New York Times is keeping on top of the AOL Time Warner securities class action. In a followup to its July 7 overview of the case (posted on The 10b-5 Daily), the paper has an article on the recently filed motion to dismiss. Among other things, AOL Time Warner argues that its restatement of $190 million is just 1% of its revenue over the period in question and that it disclosed all of its two-way deals with customers.

Quote of note: “The company’s motion to dismiss the suit is an expected part of the proceedings, and legal scholars consider it unlikely to succeed. But the relative strength of AOL Time Warner’s legal defense will help determine how costly it is for the company to resolve the suit, most likely through a settlement payment.”
