In just a few weeks, the United States Supreme Court will hear the arguments for Erica P. John Fund vs. Halliburton Corp. This case poses the most serious challenge to date related to the threshold for bringing Securities Class-Actions against Companies and their Directors and Officers. At stake in this case are the underlying ‘fraud on the market‘ theory tenets established by the U.S. Supreme Court when it ruled on Basic vs. Levinson in 1988.
With a decision on Halliburton by the Supreme Court expected in June, now is the time for you to gain an understanding of the potential impact of Halliburton on your Company/Directors/Officers/Insurance. If the Supreme Court significantly raises the threshold for bringing Securities Class-Actions, as many anticipate, can publicly-held Companies breathe a sigh of relief and reduce the amount of D&O insurance they buy?
