In the latest issue of InSights (here), I review the two studies’ observations and also take a closer look at the 2006 lawsuits to try to better understand the data. In particular I analyze the data (by SIC Code, Industry and Sector) to determine who got sued, where and when. In addition, I review NERA’s study’s conclusions about the 2006 securities class action settlements, assesses the possible reasons for the 2006 filings decline, and close with some thoughts about the possible impact of the decline on the pricing of D&O insurance.
