Opting Out Of WorldCom

Compliance Week has an article on the battle between counsel for the WorldCom class action plaintiffs and counsel for the WorldCom opt-out plaintiffs over who obtained a better settlement for their clients. The competing press releases can be found here (class action plaintiffs) and here (opt-out plaintiffs). Thanks to Securities Litigation Watch for the link.

Addition: An interesting sidenote to the $651 million settlement with the opt-out plaintiffs – Citigroup and J.P. Morgan agreed to join the plaintiffs in petitioning the SEC to toughen its disclosure rules for securities offerings.
