According to the most recent docket, on March 19, 2004, the Court entered the Order by U.S. District Judge Alan S. Gold granting the motion for disbursement of the Class Settlement funds. Earlier, on November 16, 2001, the Court entered the Stipulation and Agreement of Settlement. On March 6, 2002, the Court entered the Judge Alan S. Gold’s Order and Final Judgment and the case was closed on March 19, 2002.

The complaint charges defendants with violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. Specifically, the complaint charges CHS and certain officers and directors with artificially inflating the share price of CHS stock by issuing false and misleading statements and omissions.

About the Company & Securities Data


"Company" information provides the industry and sector classification and headquarters state for the primary company-defendant in the litigation. In general, "Securities" information provides the ticker symbol, market, and market status for the underlying securities at issue in the litigation.

In most cases, the primary company-defendant actually issued the securities that are the subject of the litigation, and the securities information and company information relate to the same entity. In a small subset of cases, however, the primary company-defendant is not the issuer (for example, cases against third party brokers/dealers), and the securities information and company information do not relate to the same entity.
