Securities class action lawsuit filings in the first half of 2020 were more than 15% below the number of filings in the first half of each of the last three years, according to a new report from NERA Economic Consulting. The report, entitled “Recent Trends in Securities Class Action Litigation: 2020 H1 Update” (here), projects a year-end total number of filings below the last three years’ totals, but still well above the totals for the years prior to 2017. NERA’s July 17, 2020 press release, which contains a detailed summary of the findings illustrated in the report, can be found here. My analysis of the first half filings can be found here.
