Siracusano v. Matrixx Initiatives, Inc., No. 06-15677

By FindLaw Staff | Last updated on

In a securities fraud action alleging that defendant failed to disclose material information regarding its cold remedy drug, Zicam, dismissal of the complaint is reversed where: 1) in relying on the statistical significance standard to determine materiality, the district court made a decision that should have been left to the trier of fact; and 2) the inference that defendants withheld information intentionally or with deliberate recklessness was at least as compelling as the inference that they withheld the information innocently.
