Alaska Elec. Pension Fund v. Flowserve Corp., No. 07-11303
In a securities fraud class action, the District Court's denial of class certification and grant of Defendants' summary judgment motion are reversed where: 1) the District Court conducted its Fed. R. Civ. P. 23 hearing under an erroneous legal standard for proving loss causation; and 2) a reasonable trier of fact could conclude that one of Defendant's alleged misstatements regarding its earnings caused some portion of Plaintiff's loss after the "relevant truth" began to leak out.
