A New York federal court granted judgment on the pleadings to the Gen Re defendants in the consolidated AIG securities litigation (about which we have previously posted on July 17, 2008 and November 17, 2009). The partial judgment under Rule 54 does not affect the other defendants. In 2008, Gen Re and certain of its individual officers moved for judgment on the pleadings, arguing that they were not liable to AIG as a matter of law for alleged “fraud on the market” in connection with alleged statements made pertaining to AIG, as a result of the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in Stoneridge Investment Partners, LLC v. Scientific-Atlanta, Inc., 552 U.S. 148 (2008). In its recent ruling, the court agreed, holding that AIG’s pleading failed to allege the elements of “material misrepresentation or omission,” and “reliance upon that misrepresentation” under the standards set in Stoneridge, and therefore granted judgment on the pleadings to the Gen Re defendants.
