Case Status:    DISMISSED    
On or around 08/28/2001 (Other)

Filing Date: April 23, 1999

According to the docket dated November 20, 2003, on August 28, 2001, the Court entered the Order of Dismissal by U.S. District Judge David Folsom granting the Defendants’ motion to dismiss the complaint. The plaintiffs did not file a replead within the allowed 30 days and so the action was dismissed with prejudice and the case closed.

The Complaint charges HCB and certain officers and directors of the Company during the relevant time period with violations of Sections 10(b) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, by, among other things, issuing to the investing public false and misleading financial statements and press releases concerning HCB's earnings. Because of the issuance of a series of false and misleading financial statements and press release concerning HCB's financial results, the price of HCB securities were artificially inflated during the Class Period.

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.
