Robertson Stephens, Inc. : Sycamore Networks, Inc. Securities Litigation
On or around 05/31/2006 (Court's order of dismissal)
Filing Date: April 03, 2003
According to the docket, on June 1, 2006, the Court entered the Order signed by U.S. District Judge Gerard E. Lynch closing the case. According to the Order, in light of the settlement in DeMarco v. Robertson Stephens, Inc. and Paul Johnson, 03-cv-590, approved by this Court on 2/23/2006, the Clerk of the Court is respectfully directed to close out the six related cases.
In August 2003, the Court ordered that this case be transferred to the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York pursuant to 28 USC 1404(a)& (b) to be coordinated for pretrial discovery with In re: Corvis Corp. Analyst Life.
The Complaint charges that Robertson Stephens and its analyst Paul Johnson issued materially false and misleading public statements, research reports and "Buy" recommendations on Sycamore and praised the acquisition of Sirocco Networks, Inc. ("Sirocco") by Sycamore while failing to disclose that Johnson owned Sirocco stock and that the acquisition would result in a multimillion windfall for Johnson. The Complaint alleges that, based on defendants' recommendations and failure to disclose defendant Johnson's conflicts of interest, Sycamore securities sold at artificially inflated prices during the Class Period. As a result, Plaintiff and the rest of the Class purchased their Sycamore shares at prices that were artificially inflated and were damaged thereby.

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.
