It was a busy week for news articles related to securities class actions. Here is a quick roundup:
(1) There were three noteworthy articles related to the Enron settlements. Forbes had a column on the potential attorneys’ fees. The Associated Press discussed the pressure on the other bank defendants to settle. Finally, CNN/Money offered an overview of the settlement landscape.
(2) The New Jersey Law Journal published a “practice paper” (via law.com – free regist. req’d) on the Third Circuit’s Chubb decision. (The 10b-5 Daily’s summary of the decision can be found here.)
(3) The June 2005 SCAS Alert contains an interesting survey of foreign legislative efforts to permit U.S.-style securities class actions.
