Click here to view the coalition brief filed by the U.S. Chamber, the Securities Industry and Financial Markets Association, and the Financial Services Institute. The brief urges the U.S. Supreme Court to grant cert. and reverse the Ninth Circuit by clarifying that the “in connection with” language in the Securities Litigation Uniform Standards Act must be read broadly to effect the statute’s text and purpose. The brief argues that SLUSA restricts the kinds of class actions that can be brought based on state law claims regarding securities.

Joseph R. Palmore, Adam L. Sorensen, Jordan Eth, and Mark R.S. Foster of Morrison & Foerster LLP and the U.S. Chamber’s Litigation Center served as co-counsel for the U.S. Chamber.
