Motient Corp. v. Dondero, 07-10302

In a suit for damages and injunctive relief under the Securities Exchange Act (SEA), denial of money damages is affirmed in part and the case remanded in order to dismiss the claims for injunctive relief without prejudice where: 1) section 13(d) of the SEA does not give issuers of securities a private cause of action; and 2) injunctive relief would be inappropriate based on defendant's having divested itself of its holdings in plaintiff.
