Final Judgment Entered in $100 Million Halliburton Securities Class Action

On June 4, 2018, Judge Barbara Lynn entered final judgment in Erica P. John Fund, Inc. v. Halliburton Co., et al., No. 3:02-cv-1152 (N.D. Tex.). KSF served as Co-Class Counsel in the federal securities class action against oilfield services company and a high-level officer, in which Class Counsel obtained a unanimous decision by the U.S. Supreme Court in Erica P. John Fund, Inc. v. Halliburton Co., et al., 563 U.S. 804 (2011) vacating and remanding a decision of the Fifth Circuit, and then successfully defeated Defendants’ attack on the Basic v. Levinson presumption of reliance in Halliburton Co. v. Erica P. John Fund, Inc., 134 S. Ct. 2398 (2014). These two Supreme Court decisions led to certification of the class, and ultimately resulted in a cash settlement of $100 million for investors.
