District Court Dismisses Complaint for Failure to Adequately Plead Scienter


Plaintiff asserted a securities class action complaint against Nextwave Wireless Inc., as well as certain of its officers and directors. The complaint alleged that defendants made 17 statements that were false and misleading to investors over an extended period of time, and that as a result defendants were liable under Rule 10(b) of the Securities Exchange Act.

The court had dismissed plaintiff's prior complaint and directed plaintiff to file an amended pleading. Defendants moved to dismiss the amended complaint, arguing that the complaint failed to provide a plain and concise statement of plaintiff's claims as required by the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, and because the complaint failed to adequately plead scienter under the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995.
