Alaska Elec. Pension Fund v. Flowserve Corp., No. 07-11303

By FindLaw Staff on June 22, 2009 4:56 PM

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.
