We previously reported on the decision of the Second Circuit permitting a class plaintiff to sue on behalf of purchasers of the offering of RMBS that it purchased, as well as RMBS in other offerings that it did not purchase. NECA-IBEW Health & Welfare Fund v. Goldman Sachs & Co., 693 F.3d 145 (2d Cir. 2012). On March 18, 2013, the Supreme Court declined the petition for a writ of certiorari to review the NECA decision. Also, in New Jersey Carpenters Health Fund v. Royal Bank of Scotland Group, PLC, 709 F.3d 109 (2d Cir. 2013), another panel of the Second Circuit followed the NECA ruling, and vacated the district court’s decision, which had held that plaintiffs lacked standing to sue on behalf of purchasers of securities the plaintiffs did not purchase, and it remanded the case for reconsideration in light of NECA.
