Filing Date: April 19, 1999

According to the most recent docket posted, on June 11, 1999, the defendants filed motions to dismiss the complaint. On March 27, 2000, the Court entered the Final Order signed by U.S. District Judge William P. Dimitrouleas granting the motions to dismiss the complaint and denying as moot the motion for appointment of co-lead plaintiffs and motion for class certification. The case was closed. On May 12, 2000, the Court entered the Final Judgment dismissing the action.

The complaint charges that as part of and as a participant in the scheme to defraud investors and create a market for otherwise unmarketable ICM "securities," SouthTrust and an Individual Defendant acted as a reference for potential investors in ICM. The complaint further alleges that Defendants violated securities laws by touting ICM and its principals without (a) any investigation into the background of any of ICM's principals; (b) any investigation of financial statements from ICM; and (c) any documentation concerning confirmation of transactions or income earned by investors. Plaintiffs seek to recover damages on behalf of all class members.

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.
