Terayon Communications Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq: TERN), a Santa Clara-based provider of digital video networking applications, has announced the preliminary settlement of the securities class action pending against the company in the N.D. of Cal. The case originally was filed in 2000 and is based on allegedly misleading statements concerning the company's ability to obtain certification for its technology.
The settlement is for $15 million, with Terayon paying $2.3 million and the rest covered by insurance. Prior to this settlement, the case had been a lightening rod for criticism over the relationship between short sellers and the securities plaintiffs' bar.
