A few items of interest from around the web:
(1) Bruce Carton, a longtime securities law blogger, has launched Securities Docket a “global securities litigation and enforcement report.” The site provides one-stop shopping for the latest news, blog posts, filings, etc.
(2) The New York Law Journal has a column (subscrip. req’d) on recent Ninth Circuit loss causation decisions. In particular, the authors discuss the Apollo Group, Corinthian Colleges, and Gilead decisions and conclude that they have not made it more difficult to successfully plead loss causation.
(3) The WSJ Law Blog has coverage of a recent decision in the Oracle securities class action. The court found that the defendants engaged in discovery abuses, including failing to preserve audio recordings of an author’s interviews with Oracle’s CEO (even though the recordings were in the possession of the author).
