Brieger, et al. v. Tellabs, Inc., et al.

1 minute read


On June 1, 2009, Judge Matthew Kennelly of the United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois, Eastern Division ruled in favor of our client, Tellabs Inc., in an ERISA case. Plaintiffs alleged, among other things, that defendants made misrepresentations regarding Tellabs' business and failed to disclose information that plaintiffs needed in order to make informed decisions about the allocation of their contributions to the Tellabs Stock Fund in the Tellabs Advantage Plan, a retirement and savings plan. Compass Lexecon expert David Ross initially filed an expert report on class certification, and then testified at trial on behalf of defendants concerning the investment decisions made by Plan participants during the relevant period. Laurel Van Allen and Gina Vinogradsky of our Chicago office provided assistance. Defendants were represented by Chuck Jackson, Sari Alamuddin, Debbie Davidson, and others in the Chicago office of Morgan, Lewis & Bockius LLP.
