Closing the loophole in the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995
The Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, enacted to decrease the number of frivolous securities fraud class actions, affects only those brought in federal courts and the state courts should adopt the law's adequate plaintiff requirement for both securities fraud class actions and derivative suits. This measure would close the law's loophole and decrease forum-shopping and filing securities fraud suits in state courts instead.
