Merrill Lynch Optimistic That Remaining Suits Will Be Dismissed

Having gone three-for-three in front of Judge Pollack of the S.D.N.Y. this week, Merrill Lynch is apparently optimistic that the remaining 24 securities class actions against the company based on allegedly biased research reports will be dismissed. According to a Reuters article, the general counsel of Merrill Lynch sent an e-mail to employees stating: "Although the dismissals apply only to these three class actions, we believe the reasoning of the decisions is equally applicable to other research-related class actions as well."
