Coca-Cola Suit Fizzes

There has been an interesting development in the long-running Coca-Cola securities class action. According to media reports, the defense has sought denial of class certification based on alleged misconduct by lead counsel for the plaintiffs (Coughlin Stoia and Chitwood Harley) relating to payments to witnesses. Coca-Cola asserts that these are the "same sort of tactics" that the former lead attorney on the case has admitted to as part of a recent criminal plea agreement. Coverage can be found in the Wall Street Journal, the Fulton County Daily Report, and Reuters.
