9th Circuit Electronic Filing Search Results

Link 1
Link 2

Ninth Circuit began allowing briefs to be filed electronically in June 2001 on an experimental basis, with the consent to all parties. The notification of the experiment, on the court's Web site, explains that only one such brief needs to be filed – in PDF format on a PC-readable CD-ROM. Excerpts of records may also be submitted in electronic format and can be hyperlinked with the brief. Electronic filing, however, does not reduce the number of paper copies of the briefs and excerpts to be filed.

Nursing Home Pension Fund v. Oracle, Ellison, et al.

A number of purchasers of Oracle Corporation stock (collectively
referred to as "Plaintiffs") appeal the District Court's
dismissal under Rule 12(b)(6) of their revised second
amended complaint ("the Complaint") against Oracle Corporation
and three of its top executive officers (collectively
referred to as "Oracle" or "Defendants"). Plaintiffs' Complaint
alleged that Defendants violated section 10(b) of the
Securities Exchange Act of 1934 ("1934 Act"), 15 U.S.C.
§ 78j(b), and Rule 10b-5, promulgated thereunder. Plaintiffs
further alleged that Oracle is liable under section 20(a) of the
1934 Act, 15 U.S.C. § 78t(a).

The PSLRA was designed to eliminate frivolous or sham
actions, but not actions of substance. This is far from a
cookie-cutter complaint. Together, the false representations,
both as to current facts and future estimated profits and sales,
as well as the improper revenue adjustment and unusual stock
sales, provide a basis for the cause of action against Oracle
and each of its three top executives. We reverse the District
Court's dismissal of the Complaint. 9th Cir. Opinion
