As summarized by the Company’s Form 10-Q for the quarterly period ended August 4, 2001, on July 23, 1999, the Company filed a motion to dismiss. United States District Judge Kenneth Hoyt entered an order on December 8, 1999 dismissing the Weld Suit. Mr. Weld appealed the order to the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit (the "Fifth Circuit"). On May 16, 2001, the Fifth Circuit affirmed the District Court's dismissal of the Weld Suit

The suit alleges generally that the defendants made false or misleading statements or omissions relating to Stage's acquisition of C.R. Anthony Company as well as Stage's business and prospects and seeks unspecified 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.
