James H.S. Levine : Delaware Business Court Insider : March 03, 2015
Delaware Court of Chancery Chancellor Andre G. Bouchard recently eliminated any doubt that properly pleading all elements of a cause of action remains a fundamental aspect of stating a claim under Delaware law, reiterating that a party must plead all elements to survive a motion to dismiss even under Delaware's comparatively lenient reasonable-conceivability standard.
Robert L. Hickok and Gay Parks Rainville : The Legal Intelligencer : March 03, 2015
On Feb. 9, one of the plaintiffs in the federal securities class action against Nvidia Corp., Roberto Cohen, filed a petition for writ of certiorari with the U.S. Supreme Court, seeking review of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit's Oct. 2, 2014, decision affirming dismissal of the action, specifically, the court's holding that Item 303 of U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) Regulation S-K does not create a duty to disclose for purposes of an omission actionable under Section 10(b) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and SEC Rule 10b-5. Cohen's petition (, Petition No. 14-975) argues that this holding by the Ninth Circuit in , 768 F.3d 1046 (9th Cir. 2014), conflicts with the Second Circuit's recent holding in , No. 13-0627, 2015 U.S. App. LEXIS 428 (2d Cir. Jan. 12, 2015), and the Third Circuit's 15-year-old decision in , 226 F.3d 275 (3d Cir. 2000). Although the Ninth Circuit's opinion states that its holding regarding Item 303 disclosures is consistent, not in conflict, with , a split among these circuits exists nonetheless.
