|15-278||9th Cir.||Not Argued||Jan 25, 2016||n/a||Per Curiam||OT 2015|
Holding: The Ninth Circuit failed to properly evaluate, to determine whether it states a claim, a complaint filed by a company’s stockholders against the company’s fiduciaries for breach of the duty of prudence when it failed to assess whether the complaint in its current form “has plausibly alleged” that a prudent fiduciary in the same position “could not have concluded” that the alternative action “would do more harm than good.”
Judgment: Reversed and remanded in a per curiam opinion on January 25, 2016.
