Court dismissed class action complaint alleging that St. Joe deceived investors about the value of properties located in the Florida panhandle. Court held that "Plaintiffs claims of misrepresentation are insufficient to meet the standard of pleading fraud with particularity because they fail to allege that Defendants acted with the requisite scienter and made statements that they knew were materially false at the time. Additionally, Plaintiff has failed to establish loss causation."
