In In re Constar Int’l, Inc. Securities Litigation, No. 08-2461, 2009 WL 3462032 (3d Cir. Oct. 29, 2009), the United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit affirmed an order by the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania certifying a class of plaintiffs who brought suit under Section 11 of the Securities Act of 1933. The Court held that the district court did not abuse its discretion by certifying the class, notwithstanding defendants’ argument that the district court erred in concluding that the “predominance” element of Rule 23(b)(3) had been met before deciding whether the stock traded in an efficient market. The district court held that a claim for fraudulent statements in a registration statement under Section 11 (as distinct from a claim for securities fraud brought under Section 10(b) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934) does not require plaintiffs to establish reliance or loss causation.
