It looks like a ruling was handed down yesterday on ValueClick’s motions to dismiss. From the website of the plaintiff’s attorneys:
On August 27, 2007, the Honorable Florence-Marie Cooper issued two orders denying, in part, ValueClick’s Motions to Dismiss the Class Action Complaints. The Court held that Defendants failed to meet their burden of establishing that Plaintiffs could not proceed in the lawsuits.
The pdf’s of the ruling are available as well at:
Lots of legalese. It looks like the cases will proceed. Additionally, it appears that the plaintiff’s will have the opportunity to amend one claim the judge moved to dismiss if they so chose. So that point may end up back in the claim in some form. At least, that’s what it appears to my non-legal mind towards the end of the Carrier MTD Order.
I’m still wondering if and when ValueClick (VCLK) and/or CJ will have any kind of public comment regarding these lawsuits.
AFP will continue to follow developments in these lawsuits as they progress.
