Anschutz Corp. v. Merrill Lynch & Co., Inc., 11-1305

FindLaw, 14 August 2012

In a suit against Merrill Lynch and others, claiming market manipulation, fraud, control person liability, and negligent misrepresentation, district court’s judgment in favor of the defendants is affirmed where: 1) the market manipulation claims fail for the same reasons identified in Wilson v. Merrill Lynch & Co., which held that the same website disclosure at issue in this case contained sufficient information about Merrill Lynch’s support bidding practices to preclude a market manipulation claim; 2) district court properly dismissed the California Corporations Code claims as plaintiff fails to allege any injury or unlawful conduct in California; and 3) district court properly dismissed the negligent misrepresentation claims against the Rating Agency defendants as plaintiff fails to allege an actionable misrepresentation under New York law.
