Pursuant to the Court’s Order granting the plaintiff’s motion to remand, Judgment was entered on October 24, 2003, in favor of the plaintiff and against the defendants. The case was remanded to Superior Court of the State of California and the civil case was terminated.

This class action lawsuit was originally filed in the Superior Court of the State of California for the County of Santa Clara, and it was brought pursuant to section 17200 of the California Business & Professions Code.

On July 24, 2003, the filing of State of California was removed to the United States District Court for Northern District of California pursuant to the provisions 28 of the U.S.C., sections 1331, 1441(a), and 1441(b). According to the Notice of Removal, the Northern District of California Court has exclusive original jurisdiction pursuant to the provisions 15 of the U.S.C. section 78aa, given that with this action Plaintiff seeks to implement and/or enforce rules promulgated by the New York Stock Exchange ("NYSE") and the National Association of Securities Dealers ("NASD").

In addition, in the original complaint plaintiff seeks disgorgement of defendants' illegally obtained profits, and injunctive relief to put the investor on notice of any relationship between the investment bank issuing research reports and the company which the analyst is covering and to stop the defendants' further improper conduct.

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.
