The Focal Point worked with Latham & Watkins on behalf of Oracle Corporation and three of its executive officers in a $3 billion securities fraud class action arising from a missed earnings forecast in 2001, which was preceded by insider stock sales of over $900 million. Plaintiffs alleged that defendants made false and misleading statements regarding Oracle's projected financial results, and that certain Oracle executives sold stock while in possession of material, nonpublic information.
