California Superior Courts Enforce Delaware Corporations’ Federal Forum Provision For Securities Act Lawsuits

04 Apr 2024  |  jdsupra.com
Two California Superior Courts have upheld federal forum provisions in corporate documents for Delaware corporations, allowing them to preclude state court actions under the Securities Act of 1933. This follows the Supreme Court's Cyan Inc. v. Beaver County Employees Retirement Fund decision, which led to an increase in state court Securities Act claims and contradictory rulings on federal safeguards. The Delaware Supreme Court's Sciabacucchi v. Salzberg decision validated the enforceability of FFPs under Delaware law. The California courts' decisions in Wong v. Restoration Robotics, Inc. and In re Uber Technologies, Inc. Securities Litigation suggest that other courts may enforce FFPs, especially where shareholders have approved them. However, these decisions are not binding precedent outside of California and do not address FFPs for businesses incorporated outside of Delaware.

California Superior Court Enforces Delaware Corporation’s Federal Forum Provision For Securities Act Lawsuits

01 Sep 2020  |  jdsupra.com
On September 1, 2020, the California Superior Court for San Mateo County upheld a federal forum provision in Restoration Robotics, Inc.'s corporate documents, marking the first instance outside of Delaware to do so. This decision follows the Delaware Supreme Court's ruling in Sciabacucchi v. Salzberg, which validated such provisions under Delaware law. The enforcement of the federal forum provision is significant in mitigating the adverse effects of the Supreme Court's Cyan decision, which has led to an increase in parallel state and federal litigation under the Securities Act of 1933. The California court's decision, while not binding precedent, suggests that other courts in California may also enforce federal forum provisions for Delaware corporations.

Massachusetts District Court Dismisses Suit Against Pharma Company Finding That Optimistic Statements Regarding Drug Prospects Are Not Misleading Simply Because FDA Does Not Approve

23 Mar 2020  |  www.mondaq.com
The United States District Court for the District of Massachusetts dismissed a securities fraud class action against Alnylam Pharmaceuticals, Inc. Plaintiffs alleged Alnylam made misleading statements about the drug Onpattro, which was approved by the FDA for treating polyneuropathy but not cardiomyopathy. The court found that optimistic statements made by Alnylam were not materially misleading and were protected under the PSLRA's safe-harbor provision. The decision is significant for defendants in the life sciences industry facing similar claims.

SEC Proposes Amendments to Advertising and Client Solicitation Rules under the Investment Advisers Act

04 Nov 2019  |  jdsupra.com
The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission proposed significant amendments to rules under the Investment Advisers Act relating to investment adviser advertising and client solicitation. The amendments aim to modernize and clarify regulations, addressing the use of current advertising technology and imposing new compliance requirements. The proposed changes include a more expansive definition of 'advertisement,' principles-based prohibitions in advertising, and specific rules for testimonials, endorsements, and third-party ratings. Performance advertising guidelines are also refined, and compliance requirements are updated, including a new pre-approval requirement for advertisements. The SEC is reviewing past guidance and no-action letters in light of the proposed rules and has opened a 60-day comment period for public input.
