THE SECURITIES CLASS ACTION DATABASE:
record in our database is a filing brought to Court for the first
time by shareholders of the same issuer that uniquely identifies a
course of conduct against the defendant or defendants named in the
complaint. Accordingly, when other filings arise out of the same subject
matter as the action first filed, and is brought by shareholders of
the same issuer, or issuers, it is hereafter part of the same record.
We do not track lawsuits filed in state court where there is no parallel
federal civil class action, nor do we track SEC enforcement proceedings
when there is no parallel federal civil class action.
