Date Filed Document Text
March 20, 2017 Opinion or Order Filing 68 Opinion and Order - Plaintiffs have satisfied the requirements of the PSLRA and adequately alleged materially misleading representations and omissions contained in the Proxy statement, Defendants' negligence, and resulting loss causation. Thus, Plaintiffs have sufficiently stated a claim for a violation of § 14(a) of the Securities Exchange Act. Defendants' motion to dismiss (ECF 56 ) is therefore DENIED. In addition, the motion to dismiss (ECF 58 ) brought by other defendants who since have been voluntarily dismissed from this action by Plaintiffs is denied as moot. Signed on 3/20/2017 by Judge Michael H. Simon. (mja)
