The U.S. Supreme Court's decisions in recent years have had a significant effect on securities class action litigation in the district courts and Courts of Appeals breathing some life into once dead doctrines like "core operations" and "collective scienter." The Supreme Court's decisions have also given loss causation an increased focus at all stages of a securities class action including motions to dismiss, class certification, summary judgment, motions in limine, trial, and even post-trial motions. The credit crisis has raised interesting questions in shareholder derivative suits concerning the duties of boards to manage systemic risk and more broadly raised issues concerning how companies can structure their insurance coverage to withstand the crisis.
