In re Morgan Stanley Info. Fund Secs. Litig., No. 09-0837

By FindLaw Staff on January 26, 2010 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

In a securities fraud action alleging that defendant bank failed to make certain disclosures relating to the mutual funds it offered, the dismissal of the complaint is affirmed where: 1) neither the Securities Act nor Form N-1A required defendants to disclose the information that plaintiffs allege was omitted; and 2) a careful review of plaintiffs' allegations revealed that the true object of their claims was the alleged malfeasance of the mutual funds' affiliated broker-dealer entities and not the public offerings conducted by the funds themselves.
