This commentary previews an upcoming Supreme Court case, Amgen v. Connecticut Retirement Plans and Trust Funds, in which the Court will decide whether plaintiffs in securities fraud class actions must prove materiality at the class certification stage, or if that inquiry is more appropriately left to later stages of litigation. The case requires the Court to resolve a circuit split on this issue, and will have far-reaching implications for the future of securities fraud litigation.
