The number of securities class-action lawsuits involving materiality and price impact rules has remained high in recent years. With the Halliburton II decision in the backdrop, allowing defendants to rebut fraud-on-the-market presumption at the class certification stage, courts have struggled in providing clear guidance on assessing rebuttal evidence. Thus, creating a more complex litigation environment.
