    Event Synopsis:
    The securities class action landscape drastically shifted along with notable cases and court rulings concerning price impact. Earlier in 2018, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit released its opinion on Arkansas Teachers Retirement System v. Goldman Sachs Group, Inc. The opinion serves as a proper guidance in assessing a defendant’s rebuttal evidence in relation to Halliburton II, which allowed defendants to rebut fraud-on-the-market presumption during a class certification stage. The Second Circuit refuted the district court’s opinion that a “conclusive” proof of evidence is necessary as the “preponderance of the evidence” is enough to prove the absence of price impact.

    Join a panel of distinguished professionals and thought leaders organized by The Knowledge Group as they provide an in-depth discussion of the evolving landscape of securities class action. They will discuss notable cases and court rulings and opinions concerning Halliburton II, materiality and price impact rule. Speakers will also address risk issues and offer best practices to successfully bring or defend against this type of lawsuit.

    • The Price Impact Rule
    • Notable Cases, Court Rulings and Opinions
