United States Ninth Circuit

Hampton v. Pacific Investment Management Company, LLC, 15-56841

Affirming a district court holding dismissing securities related claims for breach of contract and fiduciary duties under Massachusetts state law because the Securities Litigation Uniform Standards Act bars private class actions based on state laws in cases where the plaintiff alleges a material falsehood or omission connected with the purchase or sale of federally regulated securities, but vacating the decision's prejudice because the judge lacked jurisdiction to reach the merits of the claims.
