Lead Plaintiff in Halliburton Securities Case Names Special Counsel

Share Article

Founder of Truth in Corporate Justice LLC requested to continue on case.

The Archdiocese of Milwaukee Supporting Fund, Inc. (“AMS Fund”) recently requested that Neil Rothstein, on leave of absence from Scott + Scott, LLC, the law firm, serving as Lead Counsel in the Halliburton Securities Fraud Class Action Litigation case (Case No. 3:02-CV-1152-M), http://www.halliburtonsecuritieslitigation.com, be named “Special Counsel to the Lead Plaintiff.” Due to his significant development and activity in this litigation Neil will ensure that the Lead Plaintiff continues to control and direct this litigation (to maintain his fiduciary duty to all plaintiffs in the purported class). Mr. Rothstein is the Founder and Chief Managing Officer (“CMO”) of the Worldwide Tree™ Group (http://www.worldwidetree.org). The group consists of Truth in Corporate Justice LLC, and its subsidiaries, the Global Governance Center LLC, and Class in Action LLC. Additionally, the Group contains Worldwide Tree Multimedia LLC. Contact Truth in Corporate Justice LLC at 800/610-4998 or Neil Rothstein directly at 619/251-0887.    

Mr. Rothstein with full support of the firm took this leave from Scott + Scott, LLC; he no longer is a partner. Neil assumed the same role as Special Counsel on behalf of AMS in the Enron securities litigation, where AMS is the Representative Plaintiff for the debt bondholders and where AMS has taken an active role at the request of the Lead Plaintiff.

Recently, Halliburton and certain individual defendants filed a Motion to Dismiss, a major part of which was denied by the Court. This is a remarkable case, as the AMS Fund blocked a previously announced $6 million settlement and had the other lead attorneys and plaintiffs removed from their leadership positions (some withdrew voluntarily prior to their potential dismissal). Pursuant to the Court order, an updated complaint has been filed. Information regarding this litigation case can be found at the Halliburton Web site listed above.
