AETHER SYSTEMS: Lovell, Sirota Firms File Securities Suit
---------------------------------------------------------
The law firms of Lovell & Stewart, LLP and Sirota & Sirota, LLP
filed a class action lawsuit on July 11, 2001 on behalf of all
persons and entities who purchased, converted, exchanged or
otherwise acquired the common stock of Aether Systems, Inc.
(NasdaqNM:AETH) between October 20, 1999 and April 3, 2001,
inclusive.

The lawsuit asserts claims under Sections 11, 12 and 15 of the
Securities Act of 1933 and Sections 10(b) and 20(a) of the
Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and Rule 10b-5 promulgated by the
SEC thereunder and seeks to recover damages. Any member of the
class may move the Court to be named lead plaintiff no later than
August 20, 2001.

The action, Karasik v. Aether Systems, Inc., et al., is pending in
the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York (500
Pearl Street, New York, New York), Docket No. 01-CV-6269 (SWK) and
has been assigned to the Hon. Shirley Wohl Kram, U.S. District
Judge. The complaint alleges that Aether Systems, Inc., David S.
Oros, its President and CEO, David C. Reymann, its Chief Financial
Officer, and Mark D. Ein and Dr. Rajendra Singh, two of its
directors, violated the federal securities laws. It is alleged the
violations were due to issuing and selling Aether common stock
pursuant to the IPO, secondary offering, and tertiary offering
without disclosing to investors that certain of the underwriters in
the offerings had solicited and received excessive and undisclosed
commissions from certain investors.

Rather than allowing their customers to keep their profits from the
IPO, the complaint alleges, the defendant lead underwriters
required their customers to ``kick back'' some of their profits in
the form of secret commissions. These secret commission payments
were sometimes calculated after the fact based on how much profit
each investor had made from his or her IPO stock allocation.

The complaint further alleges that defendants violated the
Securities Act of 1933 because the Prospectuses distributed to
investors and the Registration Statements filed with the SEC in
order to gain regulatory approval for the Aether offerings
contained material misstatements.  The misstatements concerned the
commissions that the underwriters would derive from the IPO and
secondary offering and failed to disclose the additional
commissions and "laddering" scheme discussed above.

Investors who purchased Aether common stock during the period
October 20, 1999 through April 3, 2001 may contact Lovell & Stewart
at (212) 608-1900 or www.lovellstewart.com or Sirota & Sirota at

AKAMAI TECHNOLOGIES: Wolf Haldenstein Files S.D. NY S-holder Suit
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Wolf Haldenstein Adler Freeman & Herz LLP has filed a class action
lawsuit in the United States District Court for the Southern
District of New York, on behalf of individuals who purchased Akamai
Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq: AKAM - news) stock between October 28,
1999 and December 6, 2000, inclusive. The suit is against
defendants Akamai, certain of its officers and directors, and its
underwriters.

The case name and index number are Cheng v. Akamai Technologies
Inc. et al, (01-CV-6280). A copy of the complaint filed in this
action is available from the Court, or can be viewed on the Wolf
Haldenstein Adler Freeman & Herz LLP website at
http://www.whafh.com.

The complaint alleges defendants violated the federal securities
laws by issuing and selling Akamai common stock pursuant to the
October 28, 1999 IPO without disclosing to investors that some of
the underwriters in the offering, including the lead underwriters,
had solicited and received excessive and undisclosed commissions
from certain investors.

Specifically, the complaint alleges that in exchange for the
excessive commissions, defendants allocated Akamai shares to
customers at the IPO price. To receive the allocations (i.e., the
ability to purchase shares) at the IPO price, the underwriters'
brokerage customers had to agree to purchase additional shares in
the aftermarket at progressively higher prices. The requirement
that customers make additional purchases at progressively higher
prices as the price of Akamai stock rocketed upward (a practice
known on Wall Street as "laddering") was intended to (and did)
drive Akamai's share price up to artificially high levels. This
artificial price inflation enabled both the underwriters and their
customers to reap enormous profits by buying stock at the IPO price
and then selling it later for a profit at inflated aftermarket
prices.

Persons who purchased Akamai securities during the class period may
request court appointment as lead plaintiff by August 31, 2001.  
For more information regarding this action, contact Wolf
Haldenstein Adler Freeman & Herz LLP at 270 Madison Avenue, New
York, New York 10016. Telephone at 800-575-0735 (Fred Taylor

BLUE MARTINI: Stull Stull Files Shareholder Suit in S.D. NY
-----------------------------------------------------------
Stull, Stull & Brody filed a class action lawsuit on July 11, 2001,
in the United States District Court for the Southern District of
New York, on behalf of purchasers of Blue Martini Software, Inc.
(NASDAQ:BLUE - news) common stock between July 24, 2000 and July 9,
2001, inclusive.

The complaint alleges that defendants

     * Blue Martini
     * Monte Zweben
     * John E. Calonico, Jr.
     * James C. Gaither
     * A. Michael Spence
     * Andrew W. Verhalen
     * Edward H. Vick, and
     * William F. Zuendt

violated the federal securities laws by issuing and selling Blue
Martini common stock pursuant to the July 24, 2000 IPO without
disclosing to investors that some of the underwriters in the
offering, including the lead underwriters, had solicited and
received excessive and undisclosed commissions from certain
investors.

The complaint alleges that, in exchange for the excessive
commissions, members of the underwriting group Goldman Sachs & Co.,
Dain Rauscher Incorporated, Thomas Weisel Partners LLC and U.S.
Bancorp Piper Jaffray Inc. allocated Blue Martini shares to
customers at the IPO price of $20.00 per share. To receive the
allocations (i.e., the ability to purchase shares) at $20.00, the
underwriters' brokerage customers had to agree to purchase
additional shares in the aftermarket at progressively higher
prices. The requirement that customers make additional purchases at
progressively higher prices as the price of Blue Martini stock
rocketed upward (a practice known on Wall Street as "laddering"')
was intended to (and did) drive Blue Martini's share price up to
artificially high levels. This artificial price inflation, the
complaint alleges, enabled both the underwriters and their
customers to reap enormous profits by buying stock at the $20.00
IPO price and then selling it later for a profit at inflated
aftermarket prices. The aftermarket price rose as high as $57 3/8
on its first day of trading, and which subsequently, on August 9,
2000, rose to a peak of $77 5/8.

Rather than allowing their customers to keep their profits from the
IPO, the complaint alleges, the underwriters required their
customers to "kick back" some of their profits in the form of
secret commissions. These secret commission payments were sometimes
calculated after the fact based on how much profit each investor
had made from his or her IPO stock allocation.

The complaint further alleges defendants violated the Securities
Act of 1933,  as the Prospectus distributed to investors, and the
Registration Statement filed with the SEC in order to gain
regulatory approval for the Blue Martini offering contained
material misstatements regarding the commissions that the
underwriters would derive from the IPO transaction. It failed to
disclose the additional commissions and "laddering" scheme
discussed above.

Persons who bought the common stock of Blue Martini between July
24, 2000 and July 9, 2001 may, no later than 60 days from July 11,
2001, request court appointment as lead plaintiff.   For more

DIGITAS INC: Wolf Haldenstein Files Complaint in S.D. NY
--------------------------------------------------------
Wolf Haldenstein Adler Freeman & Herz LLP has filed a class action
lawsuit in the United States District Court for the Southern
District of New York. The suit is on behalf of purchasers of
Digitas Inc. [Nasdaq: DTAS] between March 13, 200 and December 6,
2000, inclusive, against defendants Digitas, certain of its
officers and directors, and its underwriters.

The case name and index number are Kuritzky v. Digitas Inc. et al,
(01-CV-6283). A copy of the complaint filed in this action is
available from the Court, or can be viewed on the Wolf Haldenstein
Adler Freeman & Herz LLP website at http://www.whafh.com.

The complaint alleges defendants violated the federal securities
laws by issuing and selling Digitas common stock pursuant to the
March 13, 2000 IPO without disclosing to investors that some of the
underwriters in the offering, including the lead underwriters, had
solicited and received excessive and undisclosed commissions from
certain investors.

Specifically, the complaint alleges that in exchange for the
excessive commissions, defendants allocated Digitas shares to
customers at the IPO price. To receive the allocations (i.e., the
ability to purchase shares) at the IPO price, the underwriters'
brokerage customers had to agree to purchase additional shares in
the aftermarket at progressively higher prices. The requirement
that customers make additional purchases at progressively higher
prices as the price of Digitas stock rocketed upward (a practice
known on Wall Street as "laddering") was intended to (and did)
drive Digitas' share price up to artificially high levels. This
artificial price inflation enabled both the underwriters and their
customers to reap enormous profits by buying stock at the IPO price
and then selling it later for a profit at inflated aftermarket
prices.

Investors who purchased Digitas securities during the class period  
may request court appointment as lead plaintiff by August 28, 2001.

LLP at 270 Madison Avenue, New York, New York 10016. Telephone at

DISABILITY LITIGATION: Ruling Expands Suit for Disabled Children
----------------------------------------------------------------
Judge Gene Carter, of the U.S. District Court in Bangor, Maine
recently issued a ruling in a case brought by two Augusta-area
families to win home care for two children disabled due to mental
impairment.  

Judge Carter ruled that all children with mental impairment who are
not getting timely in-home services from the state will be
considered plaintiffs in the case filed a year ago
by the two families from Augusta.  This ruling opens the families'
disability lawsuit to possibly hundreds of other similarly disabled
children in Maine, according to a recent report appearing in the
Portland Press Herald.

The two families say that the state has failed to provide the
"timely, adequate and reliable" services for their children that
are required under federal law.  The lawsuit originated with Jill
Risinger, 16, of Winslow, who has Angelman syndrome, a form of
mental retardation.  Her case was joined by the family of Eric
Fitzpatrick, 14, who has a variety of conditions, including
attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, post-traumatic stress
disorder and speech and language difficulties.

The number of people who would be included in the lawsuit has not
been determined, but court documents suggest it falls between 400
and 700 statewide.  The ultimate cost to the state is also unknown.  
The state currently spends $13 million providing in-home care to
about 1,400 people.

The families are not seeking money, said Margaret Minster O'Keefe,
a member of the plaintiffs' legal team.  They are asking the court
to mandate reforms to the system for providing in-home care for
children with mental disabilities.  "It is really the right of the
children to receive these necessary services to assist them in
becoming fully functioning adults, or as fully functioning as they
can be," O'Keefe said.  In addition, said O'Keefe, the case is not
likely to have a large impact on Maine taxpayers, because the
services the plaintiffs are seeking come through the Medicaid
program, which receives two-thirds of its funding from the federal
government.

The case is expected to go to trial this year in U.S. District
Court in Bangor, Maine.  And state officials have said it is too
early to determine whether the case would be settled with a consent
decree, like those filed by the residents of the Augusta Mental
Health Institute and the Pineland Center, the state's former
facility for people with mental retardation.


DRKOOP.COM INC: Stull Stull Files Shareholder Suit in S.D. NY
-------------------------------------------------------------
A class action lawsuit was filed on July 11, 2001, in the United
States District Court for the Southern District of New York, on
behalf of purchasers of Drkoop.com, Inc. (OTCBB:KOOP) common stock
between June 8, 1999 and December 6, 2000, inclusive.

The complaint alleges that defendants

     * Drkoop.com
     * C. Everett Koop, M.D.
     * John F. Zaccaro
     * Donald W. Hackett
     * Susan M. Georgen-Saad
     * Jeffrey C. Ballowe
     * Mardian J. Blair
     * G. Carl Everett, Jr.
     * Richard D. Helppie, Jr., and
     * Nancy L. Snyderman, M.D.

violated the federal securities laws by issuing and selling
Drkoop.com common stock pursuant to the June 8, 1999 IPO without
disclosing to investors that some of the underwriters in the
offering, including the lead underwriters, had solicited and
received excessive and undisclosed commissions from certain
investors.

The complaint alleges that, in exchange for the excessive
commissions, members of the underwriting group Bear, Stearns & Co.
Inc. and Hambrecht & Quist LLC allocated Drkoop.com shares to
customers at the IPO price of $9.00 per share. To receive the
allocations (i.e., the ability to purchase shares) at $9.00, the
underwriters' brokerage customers had to agree to purchase
additional shares in the aftermarket at progressively higher
prices. The requirement that customers make additional purchases at
progressively higher prices as the price of Drkoop.com stock
rocketed upward (a practice known on Wall Street as laddering) was
intended to (and did) drive Drkoop.com's share price up to
artificially high levels. This artificial price inflation, the
complaint alleges, enabled both the underwriters and their
customers to reap enormous profits by buying stock at the $9.00 IPO
price and then selling it later for a profit at inflated
aftermarket prices. The aftermarket stock price rose as high as
$20.25 on June 9, 1999, its first day of trading, and which
subsequently, on July 6, 1999, rose to a peak price of $45.75.

Rather than allowing their customers to keep their profits from the
IPO, the complaint alleges, the underwriters required their
customers to kick back some of their profits in the form of secret
commissions. These secret commission payments were sometimes
calculated after the fact based on how much profit each investor
had made from his or her IPO stock allocation.

The complaint further alleges defendants violated the Securities
Act of 1933 because the Prospectus distributed to investors and the
Registration Statement filed with the SEC in order to gain
regulatory approval for the Drkoop.com offering contained material
misstatements regarding the commissions that the underwriters would
derive from the IPO transaction. It failed to disclose the
additional commissions and laddering scheme discussed above.

Buyers of the common stock of Drkoop.com between June 8, 1999 and
December 6, 2000 may request court appointment as lead plaintiff no
later than 60 days from July 11, 2001. For more information on this
action, contact Tzivia Brody, Esq. at Stull, Stull & Brody by

Stull, Stull & Brody filed a class action complaint on behalf of
all persons who acquired Immune Response Corp. (NASDAQ:IMNR)
securities between May 31, 1999 and July 6, 2001, inclusive. The

Agouron Pharmaceuticals, Inc. and its top officer with violations
of Sections 10(b) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.

AIDS. The company is also developing and testing therapeutic
products for other autoimmune conditions. Agouron Pharmaceuticals,
Inc. was, until July 6, 2001, Immune's partner in developing Remune
for commercial distribution and sale.

Remune had no effect upon people with HIV and AIDS. The Complaint
further alleges Defendants' false misrepresentations that Remune
was effective in the fight against AIDS operated to artificially
inflate the price of Immune stock.

30, 2001, inclusive.

Naveen Jain, with violations of the Securities Exchange Act of
1934. The complaint alleges that between January 2000 and January
2001 Defendants disseminated false and misleading information
concerning InfoSpace's actual FY 1999 and 2000 financial
performance and Defendants' expectations concerning InfoSpace's FY
2001 revenue and earnings. In fact, neither InfoSpace's reported FY
1999 and FY 2000 results nor its projected FY 2001 performance were
accurate.

Defendants' public representations were the result of Defendants'
efforts to manipulate InfoSpace's reported earnings and expected FY
2001 performance and were designed to (and did) allow:

     (i) Jain to sell millions of dollars of his own InfoSpace
shares at artificially inflated prices; and

acquisitions using inflated InfoSpace shares as currency.
Defendants disclosed that, contrary to the representations made by
them during 2000, InfoSpace was experiencing strong revenue growth
during 4Q99 and FY 2000. It was said InfoSpace would continue to
post strong revenue growth through FY 2001. InfoSpace reported no
revenue growth or EPS for FY 2001, but rather declining revenue and
a significant loss for the year. As Defendants began to reveal some
of their improper conduct, including the fact that Defendants'
projected revenues and earnings estimates were false, InfoSpace's
shares fell to less than $6 per share, a 95% decline from their
Class Period high of $138-1/2 per share.

filed an amended complaint on July 9, 2001 in the class action
lawsuit against Internet Capital Group, Inc. (Nasdaq: ICGE),
certain of its officers and directors, and underwriters of the
initial public offering and secondary offering of ICGE stock. The
amended complaint asserts claims on behalf of all persons and
entities who purchased or otherwise acquired call options on
Internet Capital Group common stock between August 4, 1999 and May
9, 2001, inclusive. The lawsuit asserts claims under Sections 10(b)
and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and Rule 10b-5
promulgated by the SEC thereunder and Sections 11, 12(2) and 15 of
the Securities Act of 1933 and seeks to recover damages. Any member
of the class of call option purchasers may move the Court to be
named lead plaintiff. Persons who wish to serve as lead plaintiff
must move the Court no later than September 10, 2001.

The action, Michael G. Ryan, et al., v. Internet Capital Group
Inc., et al., is pending in the U.S. District Court for the
Southern District of New York, Docket No. 01-CV-3975 (SAS). The
case has been assigned to the Hon. Shira A. Scheindlin, U.S.
District Judge. In addition to the new class of call options
purchasers, the amended complaint also asserts claims on behalf of
a second class composed of all persons who purchased, converted,
exchanged or otherwise acquired ICGE's common stock between the IPO
on August 4, 1999 and May 11, 2000. May 11, 2000 was the day before
FleetBoston Robertson Stephens became the first brokerage firm on
Wall Street to downgrade its analyst rating for ICGE. A third class
composed of all persons who purchased, converted, exchanged or
otherwise acquired ICGE common stock between May 12, 2000 and May
9, 2001, was also created.

The amended complaint alleges ICGE and certain of its officers and
directors violated the federal securities laws by issuing and
selling ICGE common stock pursuant to the IPO and secondary
offering without disclosing to investors that the co-lead
underwriters of the IPO had solicited and received excessive and
undisclosed commissions from certain investors. In exchange for the
excessive commissions, defendant IPO underwriters Merrill Lynch and
FleetBoston Robertson Stephens allocated ICGE shares to customers
at the IPO price of $12.00 per share. To receive the allocations
(i.e., the ability to purchase shares) at $12.00, the defendant IPO
underwriters' brokerage customers had to agree to purchase
additional shares in the aftermarket at progressively higher
prices.

The requirement that customers make additional purchases at
progressively higher prices as the price of ICGE stock rocketed
upward (a practice known on Wall Street as laddering) was intended
to (and did) drive ICGE's share price up to artificially high
levels. This artificial price inflation, the amended complaint
alleges, enabled both the underwriters and their customers to reap
enormous profits by buying ICGE stock at the $12.00 IPO price. It
is alleged they sold it later for a profit at inflated aftermarket
prices, which rose as high as $27.00 during its first day of
trading and which subsequently rose to over $200.00 per share (the
equivalent of over $400.00 per share on a pre-split basis) during
December 1999.

Rather than allowing their customers to keep their profits from the
IPO, the complaint alleges, the defendant underwriters required
their customers to kick back some of their profits in the form of
secret commissions. These secret commission payments were sometimes
calculated after the fact based on how much profit each investor
had made from his or her IPO stock allocation.

The amended complaint further alleges ICGE was able to price the
secondary offering of ICGE stock at an artificially high $108.00
per share due to the continued effects of the foregoing violations.
The complaint also alleges states call options on ICGE common stock
traded at artificially high prices during the class period due to
the foregoing laddering scheme. In addition, the amended complaint
alleges that analysts employed by defendants strongly recommended
and continued to recommend ICGE stock throughout the class periods
to their unsuspecting brokerage customers and to the public as a
sound investment in order to:

     1) keep the price of ICGE shares as high as possible while the
defendants marketed and sold the ICGE secondary offering; and

     2) provide defendants Merrill Lynch, FleetBoston Robertson
Stephens, Goldman Sachs and Lehman Brothers with sufficient time to
dump ICGE stock that they held in their own accounts through Rule
144 sales at artificially high prices.

Investors who purchased ICGE common stock or ICGE call options
during the period August 4, 1999 to May 9, 2001 may contact
Christopher J. Gray of Lovell & Stewart at (212) 608-1900, or email

INTERVOICE-BRITE INC: Faruqi & Faruqi File Suit in Texas Court
--------------------------------------------------------------
Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP filed a class action lawsuit in the United
States District Court for the Northern District of Texas on behalf
of all purchasers of InterVoice-Brite, Inc. (Nasdaq:INTV - news)
common stock between October 12, 1999 and June 6, 2000, inclusive.
A copy of the complaint filed in this action can be viewed on the
firm's Website at www.faruqilaw.com

The complaint charges defendants with violations of federal
securities laws by, among other things, issuing a series of
materially false and misleading press releases concerning
InterVoice's business, its financial results, the success of its
integration with Brite and its prospects. As a result, InterVoice's
stock was artificially inflated to as high as $38.75 per share,
allowing defendants to collectively sell 525,916 shares of their
InterVoice stock for $13.4 million in proceeds. On June 6, 2000,
however, InterVoice shocked the market, revealing that it would
report a loss of $0.03 to $0.05 and revenues of only $67-$68
million for the 1st Q F01 rather than the EPS of $0.22 and revenues
of $89 million defendants had led the market to expect. Defendants
blamed the shortfall on sales people who had begun leaving the
Company in the months prior to this disclosure, some of which were
unhappy with the integrated Company. Defendants also claimed they
had implemented new guidance from the SEC, Staff Accounting
Bulletin No. 101, Revenue Recognition in Financial Statements
earlier than planned. These revelations caused InterVoice stock to
plummet to as low as $5.75 per share before closing at $6.125, a
decline of 85% from its Class Period high on volume of 15.5 million
shares.

Plaintiff seeks to recover damages on behalf of himself and all
other individual and institutional investors who purchased or
otherwise acquired InterVoice securities between October 12, 1999
and June 6, 2000, excluding defendants and their affiliates.   
Persons who purchased InterVoice securities during the Class Period
may, not later than August 6, 2001, move the court to serve as lead
plaintiff of the class.  For more information, contact Anthony
Vozzolo, Esq. or Shane Rowley, Esq. of Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, 320

IPO UNDERWRITERS: Stull Stull Says Papers Support Allegations
-------------------------------------------------------------
Stull, Stull & Brody announces that allegations in cases filed by
it are supported by recent articles that have appeared in The New
York Times and The Wall Street Journal about investigations by the
United States Justice Department and the Securities Exchange
Commission into the manipulation of IPOs. Among the underwriters
named as defendants are:

     * Credit Suisse First Boston Corp.
     * The Goldman Sachs Group, Inc.
     * Lehman Brothers, Inc.
     * Merrill Lynch, Pierce, Fenner & Smith, Inc.
     * Morgan Stanley Dean Witter & Co.
     * BancBoston Robertson, Stephens, Inc., and
     * Salomon Smith Barney, Inc.

The lawsuits allege that defendants violated the federal securities
laws by issuing and selling common stock pursuant to the IPOs
without disclosing to investors that some of the underwriters in
the offering, including the lead underwriters, had solicited and
received excessive and undisclosed commissions from certain
investors.

Specifically, the complaints allege that in exchange for the
excessive commissions, defendants allocated shares to customers at
the IPO price. To receive the allocations (i.e., the ability to
purchase shares) at the IPO price, the underwriters= brokerage
customers had to agree to purchase additional shares in the
aftermarket at progressively higher prices. The requirement that
customers make additional purchases at progressively higher prices
as the price of IPO stock rocketed upward (a practice known on Wall
Street as laddering) was intended to (and did) drive the share
price up to artificially high levels. This artificial price
inflation enabled both the underwriters and their customers to reap
enormous profits by buying stock at the IPO price and then selling
it later for a profit at inflated aftermarket prices.

Among the stocks alleged to have been manipulated were the shares
of the following:

     * Stamps.com, Inc. (NASDAQ: STMP - news) for the class period
       between June 24, 1999 and May 16, 2001, inclusive;

     * Drugstore.com, Inc. (NASDAQ: DSCM - news) for the class
       period between July 28, 1999 and June 15, 2001, inclusive;

MEAD-JOHNSON: Infant Formula Mislabeling Spawns Lawsuit in Chicago
------------------------------------------------------------------
A website recall by Johnson-Mead Corp has spawned a national class
action law suit in Chicago, IL, Cook County Circuit Court for money
damages for infants who have been fed baby formula Enfamil
Nutramigen manufactured by Mead-Johnson, Internet Wire reports. The
suit was filed late Tuesday, July 10, 2001.

Mislabeling of the formula, which is marketed for babies who have
allergic reactions to cow's milk, occurred in the Spanish
instructions.  If the instructions are followed, this results in a
higher concentration of formula and may cause excessive vomiting,
diarrhea and results in dehydration in babies.  The reaction to the
formula can also lead to death, seizures and other medical
conditions, the Wire reports.

The lawsuit alleges the formula overdose results in symptoms which
mimic the symptoms for which the milk-sensitive infants are being
fed the baby formula in the first place, giving parents and
pediatricians no reason to suspect the product. For further

the underwriters in the offering, including the lead underwriters,
had solicited and received excessive and undisclosed commissions

and then selling it later for a profit at inflated aftermarket
prices.

TREX COMPANY: Bernard Gross Files Securities Complaint in VA
------------------------------------------------------------
A class action lawsuit was filed on July 11, 2001 in the Western
District of Virginia on behalf of purchasers of the securities of
Trex Company, Inc. (NYSE: TWP - news), between April 24, 2001
through June 18, 2001 inclusive. A copy of the complaint is
available from the Court or from Law Offices Bernard M. Gross, P.C.

The Complaint charges defendants with violations of Sections 10(b)
and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, and Rule 10b-5
promulgated thereunder by issuing a series of material
misrepresentations to the market between, April 24, 2001 through
June 18, 2001 thereby artificially inflating the price of Trex
securities.

The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, the Company
repeatedly issued press releases highlighting the Company's strong
sales revenue growth and earnings growth. These statements were
materially false and misleading because they failed to disclose
that

     (1) the company had shipped to their customers product in
quantities far in excess of the actual demand which resulted in
inventory build-up at its customers; and

     (2) the excess inventory at the customer level resulted in the
company not reasonably believing it could achieve $81 million in
first half revenues for 2001 . Finally, on June 18, 2001, the
company revealed that because of its excess inventories at the
customers, it had experienced substantially reduced sales in April
and May and that Trex expected to achieve only $66 to $68 million
in revenues for the first half of 2001. As a result of this
disclosure, Trex's stock price fell $7.98 to close at $18.50 on

TYSON FOODS: Faruqi & Faruqi File Suit for IBP Sellers
------------------------------------------------------
A class action lawsuit was commenced in the United States District
Court for the District of Delaware on behalf of all sellers of IBP,
Inc. (NYSE:IBP - news) common stock between March 29, 2001 and June
15, 2001, inclusive. A copy of the complaint filed in this action
can be viewed on the law firm Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP 's Website at
www.faruqilaw.com.

The complaint charges Tyson Foods, Inc. with violations of Section
10(b) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, and Rule
10b-5 promulgated thereunder. Specifically, the complaint alleges
that on March 29, 2001, Tyson announced it was terminating the
proposed merger between Tyson and IBP. Tyson claims it was
inappropriately induced to enter into the Merger Agreement by
relying upon misleading information furnished by IBP concerning an
SEC comment letter and the financial results at an IBP subsidiary.
Immediately following Tyson's announcement, the price of IBP's
common stock plummeted in after-hours trading from $22.79 to $14.89
per share, a 35% decline. On June 15, 2001, however, in an action
brought by IBP shareholders, In re IBP, Inc. Shareholders
Litigation, Consolidated Civil Action No. 18373 (Del. Ch., June 15,
2001), the Court concluded that Tyson's decision to withdraw from
the merger had nothing to do with the SEC comment letter or the
problems at IBP's subsidiary.

Plaintiff seeks to recover damages on behalf of himself and all
other individual and institutional investors who sold IBP stock
between March 29, 2001 and June 15, 2001, excluding defendants and
their affiliates.   Persons who sold IBP securities during the
Class Period may, not later than August 21, 2001, move the court to
serve as lead plaintiff of the class.  For more information,

Faruqi, LLP, 320 East 39th Street, New York, NY 10016, Telephone:

U.S. WIRELESS: Milberg Weiss Files Suit in N.D. California
----------------------------------------------------------
Milberg Weiss (http://www.milberg.com/u.s.wireless/)filed a class  
action has been commenced in the United States District Court for
the Northern District of California on behalf of purchasers of U.S.
Wireless Corporation (NASDAQ:USWC; USWCE; CUSIP 90339C10) publicly
traded securities during the period between June 29, 1999 and May
25, 2001.

Investors who wish to serve as lead plaintiff must move the Court
no later than 60 days from today.

The complaint charges U.S. Wireless and its former Chairman and CEO
with violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. The
Company, through a national network of wireless location systems,
enables wireless carriers to offer location-enhanced services,
including 911 caller pinpointing, localized news and traffic
updates, vehicle and asset tracking, and carrier network management
services. The complaint alleges that during the Class Period, in
order to conceal their self dealing transactions, defendants caused
the Company to falsely report its results for fiscal 2000 through
improper characterization of the benefit and the beneficiaries of
the issuance of shares of the Company's stock. As a result of this
mischaracterization, the Company's net loss attributable to common
shareholders was understated by $6.2 million, or 35%. Ultimately,
U.S. Wireless revealed that its results for fiscal 2000 were in
error and would be restated to record the share issuances at fair
market value and record a loss of $5.3 million for the shares and
$0.9 million for certain tax effects. Absent defendants' improper
accounting, the Company would have reported much less favorable
fiscal 2000 earnings.

On May 29, 2001, Nasdaq issued an unusual press release entitled
"Nasdaq Halts Trading of U.S. Wireless Corporation and Requests
Additional Information from Company." On this news, U.S. Wireless
shares were halted from trading at $2.91, 88% lower than the Class
Period high of $24.50.

Plaintiff seeks to recover damages on behalf of all purchasers of
U.S. Wireless publicly traded securities during the Class Period.
The plaintiff is represented by Milberg Weiss Bershad Hynes &
Lerach LLP, who has expertise in prosecuting investor class actions
and extensive experience in actions involving financial fraud.

For more information about this action, contact plaintiff's
counsel, William Lerach or Darren Robbins of Milberg Weiss at
