Many of the securities fraud lawsuits in which our lawyers will become involved are class action lawsuits in which we represent the plaintiffs. They also involve individual or single investors that hold stock or stock options.

Eric G. Calhoun recently obtained a plaintiff's jury verdict in excess of $6 million in a securities fraud case. The investor was induced by fraud to sell her stock options back to the company shortly before it went public. Mr. Calhoun obtained a jury verdict for the price difference in the stock, along with punitive damages and attorney's fees.

Mr. Calhoun is currently involved in an ERISA/securities fraud/breach of fiduciary duty lawsuit on behalf of participants in a 401K plan. The participants' charges against the company and the 401K plan fiduciaries include breach of fiduciary duties based on material non-disclosure, among other matters.

Mr. Calhoun also recently obtained a dismissal of Civil RICO claims filed against a Dallas business man concerning a stockholder dispute.

Mr. Calhoun is also currently co-counsel for a putative class of stockholders in a securities fraud case pending in federal court in Dallas. The suit alleges that material misrepresentations and omissions were made by the company and its officers to maintain share prices, while insiders were selling their stock.
