A 10b-5 class action is a type of securities fraud class action lawsuit. It is filed against a company or individual who has made false or misleading statements in order to sell securities. The plaintiffs in a 10b-5 class action are typically investors who have lost money because of the defendant’s fraud. The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has a rule, Rule 10b-5, which prohibits securities fraud. This rule is the basis for many 10b-5 class action lawsuits. In order to prove securities fraud, the plaintiffs must show that the defendant made a material misstatement or omission in order to sell securities. The plaintiffs in a 10b-5 class action are typically seeking to recover their losses. They may also be seeking punitive damages. Punitive damages are designed to punish the defendant and deter future securities fraud. 10b-5 class action lawsuits are complex and can be very expensive to litigate. They often take years to resolve. If you have lost money because of securities fraud, you should speak to a lawyer to see if you have a case.

1. Misrepresentation: This type of class action occurs when a company or individual makes false or misleading statements in order to sell a security.

2. Insider Trading: This type of class action occurs when a company or individual trades a security while in possession of material, non-public information.
