A few items from around the web:
(1) The Financial Times has an article on the U.S. Supreme Court’s new-found interest in business cases. Although the authors note that many of these cases result in narrow decisions, they cite the Dura decision on loss causation as having had a “big impact.”
(2) The Wall Street Journal Law Blog has a follow-up post on the lead plaintiff dispute in the Merck securities litigation. The lead plaintiffs have asked the court to permit Bernstein Litowitz to act as co-lead counsel.
(3) An op-ed in the Financial Times from earlier this month discusses the negative effects abroad of U.S. shareholder litigation. The author, who works for the British Association of Insurers, advocates the curbing of lawsuits and an increase in shareholder rights. Thanks to Werner Kranenburg for the link.
