In this webinar, Vice President Laura Comstock will join a panel to discuss the changing landscape of securities class actions following the US Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit's opinion in Arkansas Teachers Retirement System v. Goldman Sachs Group, Inc. This ruling clarified the guidance provided in the Halliburton II decision on assessing rebuttal evidence intended to negate the presence of price impact at the class certification stage. Ms. Comstock and her co-panelists will discuss the implications of recent price impact rulings, as well as best practices for assessing rebuttal evidence in these types of lawsuits.
