According to the firm's 10-K dated 1/13/2000, on April
16, 1999, preliminary approval of a settlement agreement in connection with
this lawsuit and others was granted by the United States District Court for the Northern
District of California. On May 24, 1999, the settlement was granted final
approval by the United States District Court for the Northern District of
California and the California action was dismissed with prejudice.

According to a Press Release dated May 21, 1997, the complaint alleges that the defendants violated federal securities regulations by sending a proxy solicitation to the limited partners without filing it with the Securities and Exchange Commission, by mailing out the solicitation without filing or disseminating a proxy statement, and by failing to disclose numerous material facts in the solicitation.

The complaint seeks an injunction to remedy the alleged violations of securities regulations and a declaratory judgment stating that the defendants violated securities regulations. The complaint does not seek damages.

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.
