Case Status:    DISMISSED    
On or around 08/07/2003 (Date of order of final judgment)

Filing Date: May 01, 2002

According to the U.S. Court of Appeals docket, on January 20, 2005, the Judgment of the District Court was affirmed. Further, on October 19, 2005, the Writ of Certiorari was denied per Supreme Court order.

On December 23, 2002, the Court entered the Case Management Order #1. According to the Order, the actions filed on behalf of purchasers of the common stock of Interliant, Inc. were consolidated and now carried out under In re Merrill Lynch & Co., Inc. Interliant, Inc. Research Reports Securities Litigation, 02-CV-3321(MP). On March 13, 2003, a First Amended Class Action Complaint was filed, and the defendants responded by filing a motion to dismiss. On July 2, 2003, the Court entered the Decision and Order granting the motion to dismiss the consolidated class action complaint, and on August 7, 2003, the Court entered the Judgment dismissing the complaint with prejudice. On August 12, 2003, the Court further entered Order #14 denying the plaintiffs’ motion for reconsideration of the Decision and Order. The plaintiffs then filed a Notice of Appeal in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit on September 10, 2003.

In October 2002, the Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation granted the Merrill Lynch Defendants’ motion to transfer all such cases to the Southern District of New York for coordinated pre-trial proceedings. The cases were transferred to the Honorable Milton Pollack, Senior United States District Judge, and were coordinated under the caption In re Merrill Lynch Research Reports Securities Litigation, 02 MDL 1484.

The Complaint alleges that defendants issued analyst reports with positive ratings on Interliant which failed to disclose that this positive research was issued in order to attract and maintain investment banking business.

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.
