Judge Pollack Declines To Rehear Merrill Lynch Cases

Reuters reports that Judge Pollack of the S.D.N.Y. has declined to reconsider his ruling, or allow the plaintiffs to file an amended complaint, in the Merrill Lynch research class actions he recently dismissed. (The 10b-5 Daily has posted extensively about the original decision, starting here.)

Quote of note: "Pollack said on Tuesday that the plaintiffs had done 'nothing to change the unalterable, judicially-noticeable facts relating to the widespread public dissemination, years prior to the filing of the cases at bar, of information regarding analyst conflicts of interest and the service of investment banking business.'"
