New York City Employees' Ret. Sys. v. Jobs, No. 08-16488

By FindLaw Staff on January 31, 2010 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

In a securities fraud action against Steve Jobs, Apple corporation, and others concerning the issuance of an allegedly false and misleading proxy solicitation for a stock option plan, with allegations based on the backdating of stock options by Apple, dismissal of the complaint is affirmed where the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act did not differentiate between plaintiffs seeking legal and equitable remedies, and thus, without an allegation of economic loss, no remedy, equitable or otherwise, was available. However, the district court's denial of plaintiffs' request for leave to amend the complaint is reversed where the district court erred in applying a "waiver" rule to an omitted claim.
