In Edward J. Goodman Life Income Trust v. Jabil Circuit, Inc., No. 09-10954, 2010 WL 154519 (11th Cir. Jan. 19, 2010), the United States Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit affirmed the dismissal of securities fraud and insider trading claims arising out of options backdating. This decision represents the most recent effort by the Eleventh Circuit to apply the heightened pleading requirements of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 (“Reform Act”) and the Supreme Court’s decision in Tellabs, Inc. v. Makor Issues & Rights, Ltd., 551 U.S. 308 (2007), to allegations of securities fraud arising from options backdating.
