Case Status:    DISMISSED    
On or around 11/21/2002 (Date of order of final judgment)

Filing Date: October 06, 1999

According to the docket dated May 25, 2004, on November 19, 2002, the Court entered the Judgment by U.S. District Judge Samuel Conti favoring the defendants and terminating the case. The plaintiff soon after filed a Notice of Appeal, and on February 3, 2004, the Court entered the copy of the judgment from the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, affirming the decision of the District Court.

The original complaint charges Clorox with violations of Section 10(b) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, by making misrepresentations about Clorox's business, earnings growth and financial results and its ability to continue to achieve profitable growth. By issuing these allegedly false and misleading statements, Clorox artificially inflated its stock price from $97 at the outset of the Class Period to a Class Period high of $132-5/16. However, on August 12, 1999, Clorox disclosed that its 4thQ F99 revenues had declined and its stock dropped to $83-3/4.

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.
