The securities class action landscape drastically shifted along with notable cases and court rulings concerning price impact. Earlier in 2018, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit released its opinion on Arkansas Teachers Retirement System v. Goldman Sachs Group, Inc. The opinion serves as a proper guidance in assessing a defendant’s rebuttal evidence in relation to Halliburton II, which allowed defendants to rebut fraud-on-the-market presumption during a class certification stage. The Second Circuit refuted the district court’s opinion that a “conclusive” proof of evidence is necessary as the “preponderance of the evidence” is enough to prove the absence of price impact.
