State Securities Law Class Actions In Colorado
Colorado had somewhere from 12 to 16 state court securities law class action lawsuits in the fifteen period from 1996 to 2010, six in the first five years, zero to four in the next five years, and six in the last five years. State securities law class action suits most often arise in states with many publicly held corporations headquartered there (Delaware, California, New York, and Texas) and most frequently involve merger and acquisition deal disputes. The highest number of suits was in 2009, with four, but other years had just zero or one or two filings.
