South Korean Debate Over Securities Class Actions Continues

The South Korean legislature continues to debate over legislation that would permit investors to bring securities class actions.

The 10b-5 Daily has been following this story intently. South Korea is starting with a blank slate, with full knowledge of the pros and cons of the U.S. securities class action system. It will be interesting to see what the final legislation looks like.
