Welcome to the Halliburton EPJ Fund Securities Litigation
Class Action Settlement Website
THE ERICA P. JOHN FUND INC., ET AL., On Behalf of Itself and All Other Similarly Situated, Plaintiffs
HALLIBURTON COMPANY and DAVID J. LESAR, Defendants
Read the information on this site carefully. If you are a Class Member, your rights will be affected by the Settlement whether you take any action or not.
The Settlement will provide a one hundred million ($100,000,000) all cash Settlement Fund for the benefit of Class Members who purchased or otherwise acquired Halliburton common stock between August 16, 1999 and December 7, 2001, inclusive. This hard-fought litigation spans more than a decade and involves two arguments before the Supreme Court and multiple appeals to the Fifth Circuit. Class Counsel (defined below) obtained a certified Class, completed discovery, and fully briefed summary judgment before achieving the $100,000,000 all cash result. These legal services were performed on a wholly contingent basis, and therefore Class Counsel have not received any payment for their services, nor have they been reimbursed for their litigation expenses. Before final approval of the Settlement, Class Counsel will apply to the Court for an award of attorneys’ fees in an amount not to exceed one-third (33⅓%) of the gross Settlement Fund, and apply for reimbursement of litigation expenses in an amount not to exceed $7,500,000.
