Partial Settlements Under Oregon Securities Law


Law360, New York (April 27, 2010) -- The civil liability provisions of the Oregon Securities Law, ORS 59.115 and ORS 59.137, provide for joint and several liability among the various potentially liable parties — sellers; control persons; persons who “participate and materially aid” in the sale; and others — coupled with a right of contribution among those parties. So, in theory, successful plaintiffs can collect their entire judgment from one of these jointly and severally liable parties — likely the one with the deepest pockets, not necessarily the primary violator — and that party can then seek contribution of some share of that judgment from the other liable parties.
