In re: Cohen, No. 09-70378

By FindLaw Staff on November 05, 2009 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

In mandamus proceedings seeking to overturn the district court's appointment of a law firm as lead counsel in a securities fraud action, the petition is granted in part where the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act made clear that it was the lead plaintiff who selected lead counsel, not the district court. However, the petition is denied in part where the district court was still entitled to approve or disapprove the lead plaintiff's choice of counsel.
