BANK OF NEW YORK: Appeals Court Revives Suit Over Inkombank Collapse
--------------------------------------------------------------------
The United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit reversed a
New York federal court's dismissal of a class action against The Bank
of New York Company, Inc. and the Bank of New York (BNY) filed on
behalf of all depositors of Joint Stock Bank Inkombank (Inkombank), who
lost their deposits when the Russian bank collapsed in 1998.

The twice-amended suit alleges that the defendants and their senior
officers knew about, and aided and abetted the looting of Inkombank by
its principals and participated in a scheme to transfer cash improperly
from Russia to various off-shore accounts and to avoid Russian customs,
currency and tax laws.  

The suit asserts causes of action for conversion and aiding and
abetting conversion under New York law. In addition, the amended
complaint states a claim under the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt
Organizations Act (RICO).

In March 2001, the federal court dismissed the amended suit without
leave to replead.  The United States Court of Appeals for the Second
Circuit vacated the dismissal because it disagreed with one ground of
the dismissal.  The Appeals Court then remanded the case to the lower
court to consider alternate bases for dismissal.  

The Company believes that the allegations made in this action are
without merit, and intends to defend the action vigorously.


CATHOLIC CHURCH: Man Files Suit V. Manchester Priest Over Sexual Abuse
----------------------------------------------------------------------
In what is believed to be the first class action against the Diocese of
Manchester, in New Hampshire, a Londonderry man says he was sexually
abused by a Manchester Diocese priest when he was an altar boy, the
Associated Press reported recently.  The lawsuit, which seeks
unspecified damages, requests a jury trial.

The lawsuit was filed in Hillsborough County Superior Court, and
accuses the Roman Catholic Church of concealing abuse allegations
against numerous priests for decades and creating an environment of
intimidation in which boys were afraid to report the assaults.  The
suit also charges former priest Robert J. Densmore of sexually abusing
Craig Galluzzo at Our Lady of Fatima Catholic Church in New London.  
The lawsuit does not give dates or details.

The lawsuit, on behalf of the now 41-year-old man and "all others
similarly situated," names as well the Diocese of Manchester and others
employed by the diocese.  It seeks court approval to join all victims
of abuse by the church in the suit, although it does not say how many
class members are expected.

"The acts and omissions of the defendants created an environment of
permissiveness from the perspective of the offending priests, and an
environment, from the perspective of class members, which discouraged
the reporting of said abuse," the lawsuit says.

The suit also accuses the Diocese of Manchester and its employees of
conspiring to conceal the names of priests who abused children.  "The
ultimate end of this agreement was to obstruct the ability of law
enforcement to prosecute the offenders, and/or to withhold relevant and
important information regarding child abuse from authorities," the
lawsuit states.

It was not until February of 2002, the lawsuit says, that the diocese
began to release names of accused priests, even though the allegations
against the priests dated back to the early 1960s.  Mr. Densmore's name
was on the list released in February.

A spokesman for the Diocese of Manchester could not be reached for
comment, according to Associated Press.


CSX TRANSPORTATION: Settles 1987 Tank Car Fire Suit For $220M
--------------------------------------------------------------
CSX Transportation, Inc. agreed to settle for US$220 million the class
action filed against it and eight other companies relating to alleged
personal injuries that arose from a 1987 tank car fire.

In September 1997, a state court jury in New Orleans, Louisiana
returned a $2.5 billion punitive damages award against the Company.  In
October 1997, the Louisiana Supreme Court set aside the punitive
damages judgment, ruling the judgment should not have been entered
until all liability issues were resolved.  The Louisiana Supreme Court
issued a further decision authorizing and instructing the trial court
to enter individual punitive damage judgments in favor of the 20
plaintiffs who had received awards of compensatory damages.

The trial court then issued an opinion that granted the Company's
motion for judgment notwithstanding the verdict and effectively reduced
the amount of the punitive damages verdict from $2.5 billion to $850
million.  A judgment reflecting the $850 million punitive award has
been entered against the Company.  The Company has obtained and posted
an appeal bond.

In June 2001, the Louisiana Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit
affirmed the judgment of the trial court, which reduced the punitive
damages verdict from $2.5 billion to $850 million.  The Company moved
the Louisiana Fourth Circuit Court for rehearing of certain issues
raised in its appeal, but the appeals court denied the motion.

The Company then filed with the Louisiana Supreme Court an application
that the court take jurisdiction over and reverse the 1997 punitive
damages award.  The high Court's jurisdiction in this case is
discretionary.  The plaintiffs' counsel has opposed this motion.  If
the Louisiana Supreme Court takes jurisdiction of the case, an
additional round of briefing and oral argument may precede any decision
by the court.

In November 2001, the Company announced that it had reached a proposed
settlement of the litigation, subject to a fairness hearing and court
approval.  The amount to be paid under the proposed settlement is $220
million to resolve all claims arising out of the 1987 fire and
evacuation (whether or not included in the present class action).  A
preliminary settlement agreement between the Company and the
plaintiffs' management committee on behalf of the plaintiff case has
been preliminarily approved by the trial court, and has been publicly
filed.

The trial court conducted the fairness hearing for the settlement in
April 2, 2002, at which the court considered final approval of the
settlement.  The court, however, has not released its decision
regarding the settlement.

The Company is confident that the court will grant final approval to
the settlement.  If the proposed settlement is not approved and the
litigation thereby disposed of, the Company intends to continue to
pursue an aggressive legal strategy, including the pursuit of the
proceedings in the Louisiana Supreme Court and, if necessary,
proceedings before the United States Supreme Court.


MICHIGAN: Appeals Court Overturns State's Prison Inmates' Visiting Rule
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
The United States Circuit Court of Appeals, based in Cincinnati,
overturned Michigan's state rules over who may visit prison inmates,
the Associated Press reported recently, ruling in a class action filed
in Michigan federal court by prisoners and their prospective visitors.

The suit challenged the 1995 rules limiting who can visit Michigan
inmates.  Earlier, Federal Judge Nancy Edmunds found the visiting rules
unconstitutional.  The Appeals Court agreed, saying, "Under our
constitution, even those lawfully imprisoned for serious crimes retain
some basic constitutional rights."  The Appeals Court added that the
state Department of Corrections "has implemented a series of haphazard
policies that violated these rights and did real harm to inmates in its
care."

Judge Edmunds and the Appeals Court ruled for the inmates, saying the
regulations were not reasonably related to prison control.  The Appeals
Court wrote, "In the present case, the regulations fall below the
minimum standards of decency owed by a civilized society to those it
has incarcerated."

The prison-visiting rules banned visits from prisoners' minor relatives
and former prisoners who were not immediate family.  It also banned
visitors except attorneys and clergy for prisoners who had twice
violated the department's drug abuse policies.

The department said an increase in visitors was making it difficult to
control smuggling of drugs and weapons.  Children also were banned
because they were more difficult to supervise.

A spokesman for the Department of Corrections, Matt Davis, said the
department disagreed with the ruling.  "We are disappointed in it; we
think the judgment is in error," Mr. Davis said.  The department is
studying the ruling and may appeal, he added.


SECURITY INDUSTRIAL: Court Grants Approval To Race Bias Suit Settlement
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
The Louisiana State Court granted final approval to the settlement
proposed by Security Industrial Insurance Company, now known as
Security Plan Life Insurance Company, to settle ten securities class
actions, charging the Company with instituting race-based premiums in
its insurance policies.  The ten suits are almost identical, alleging
that:

     (1) the defendants sold life insurance products to plaintiffs and
         other African Americans without disclosing that premiums paid
         would likely exceed the face value of the policies; and

     (2) that plaintiffs paid higher premiums than Caucasian
         policyholders and received proportionately lower death
         benefits.


In several of the cases, the Company filed a motion to dismiss all
claims for failure to state a cause of action and/or for summary
judgment.

On January 9, 2002, the Louisiana State Court gave final approval to a
class action with respect to the claims in the lawsuits.  The Court's
final approval determined such settlement to be fair, reasonable and
adequate for the class, which was certified by the Court for settlement
purposes only. The settlement provides agreed-upon amounts of
compensation to class members in exchange for a release of all pending
and future claims they may have against the Company and certain of its
affiliates.


SERVICE CORPORATION: Certification Hearing For Funeral Homes Suit Set
---------------------------------------------------------------------
The class certification hearing for the grave desecration class action
against Service Corporation International is set for May 28, 2002 in
the Circuit Court for the 17th Judicial Circuit in and for Broward
County, Florida.  The suit also names the Company-owned Menorah Gardens
& Funeral Chapels as defendant.

The suit, brought on behalf of all persons with burial plots or family
members buried at Menorah Gardens & Funeral Chapels in Florida, allege
that that defendants have failed to exercise reasonable care in
handling remains by secretly:

     (1) dumping remains in a wooded area;

     (2) burying remains in locations other than the ones purchased;

     (3) crushing vaults to make room for other vaults;

     (4) burying remains on top of the other or head to foot rather
         than side-by-side;

     (5) moving remains; and

     (6) co-mingling remains.

The suit alleges that the above conduct constitutes:

     (i) negligence,

    (ii) tortious interference with the handling of dead bodies,

   (iii) infliction of emotional distress, and

    (iv) violation of industry specific state statutes, as well as the
         state's Deceptive and Unfair Trade Practices Act

Since the litigation is in its preliminary stages and discovery has
just commenced, the Company cannot quantify its ultimate liability, if
any, for the payment of damages or predict the outcome of the
litigation.  The Company intends to continue its investigation and to
aggressively defend itself in this lawsuit as well as continue to
cooperate with state officials in resolving the issues presented.


SERVICE CORPORATION: FL Attorney General Files Grave Desecration Suit
---------------------------------------------------------------------
The Florida Attorney General and State Comptroller commenced a class
action against Service Corporation International relating to the
alleged grave desecrations at the Menorah Gardens & Funeral Chapels, in
the Circuit Court of the 15th Judicial Circuit in and for Palm Beach
County, Florida.  The suit also names the Menorah Gardens as a
defendant.

The suit alleges that defendants conducted their business through the
willful use of false and deceptive representations regarding:

     (1) the certainty of plot location and size,

     (2) the permanence of interment and

     (3) the nature and quality of the care that defendants intended to
         provide

The suit further alleges that defendants violated Florida statutes by
engaging in the above referenced conduct.  The suit seeks:

     (i) the appointment of a receiver or administrator to manage and
         correct the operations of the defendants' Florida Menorah
         Gardens facilities;

    (ii) a full accounting of all plots sold and offered for sale by
         defendants at their Florida Menorah Gardens facilities;

   (iii) an award of unspecified actual damages sustained by consumers;

    (iv) an award of unspecified punitive damages pursuant to Florida
         statue;

     (v) imposition of civil penalties for each violation of the
         Florida statutes;

    (vi) an award of attorneys' fees and costs; and

   (vii) a permanent injunction against the defendants prohibiting them
         from engaging in the funeral and/or cemetery business at their
         Florida Menorah Gardens facilities, using false or misleading
         representations in their advertising and sales materials
         directed to the State of Florida and violating the Florida
         Statutes

Since the litigation is in its preliminary stages, the Company cannot
quantify its ultimate liability, if any, for the payment of damages or
predict the outcome of the litigation.  The Company vowed to vigorously
defend against the suit.


SPEEDWAY MOTORSPORTS: Suit Filed To Prevent Advertising of zMax System
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Speedway Motorsports, Inc. and subsidiary Oil-Chem Research Corporation
faces a class action pending in the Superior Court of Gaston County,
North Carolina alleging violations of the North Carolina Unfair and
Deceptive Trade Practices Act.

The suit is substantially similar to a lawsuit filed by the Federal
Trade Commission (FTC) in North Carolina federal court, seeking to
enjoin the two Companies from advertising zMax Power System for use in
motor vehicles.

The Court has not certified the class, but the parties have begun
discovery.  The Company intends to defend itself vigorously, and does
not believe the outcome of this lawsuit will have a material adverse
effect on its financial position or future results of operations.


TRAVELERS INSURANCE: Trial in Asbestos Suits To Commence Sept. 2002
-------------------------------------------------------------------
Trial in the asbestos-related class action against Travelers Insurance
Group Holdings, Inc. and other insurers pending in West Virginia state
court is set to commence in September 2002.

The suit was filed in October 2001, alleging that the defendants'
conduct violated the West Virginia Unfair Trade Practice Act. The case
seeks to reopen large numbers of settled asbestos claims and to impose
liability on insurers directly.

In November 2001, plaintiffs in consolidated asbestos actions pending
before a mass tort panel of judges in West Virginia State Court moved
to amend their complaint to name the Company as a defendant, alleging
that the Company and other insurers breached duties to asbestos product
end users. In March 2002, the Court granted the motion to amend.

Lawsuits based on similar allegations have also been filed against the
Company in Louisiana, Massachusetts and Texas courts.  The Company
expects that more suits of a similar nature will be brought against
them soon.

The Company believes it has meritorious defenses to the suits, and
intends to vigorously oppose them.


TRAVELERS INSURANCE: Faces Suits For Insurance Fraud, Unfair Trade
------------------------------------------------------------------
Travelers Insurance Group Holdings, Inc. faces several class actions
filed in various jurisdictions since January 1997 against some of the
Company's subsidiaries, dozens of other insurers and the National
Council on Compensation Insurance (NCCI)

The allegations in the suits are substantially similar, alleging that
the defendants conspired to collect excessive or improper premiums on
loss-sensitive workers' compensation insurance policies in violation of
state insurance laws, antitrust laws, and state unfair trade practices
laws.

After several voluntary dismissals, refilings and consolidations,
actions are currently pending in these jurisdictions:

     (1) Georgia (Melvin Simon & Associates, Inc., et al. v. Standard
         Fire Insurance Company, et al.) - defendant's motion to
         dismiss denied;

     (2) Tennessee (Bristol Hotel Asset Company, et al. v. The Aetna
         Casualty and Surety Company, et al.) - suit is partially
         dismissed;

     (3) Florida (Bristol Hotel Asset Company, et al. v. Allianz
         Insurance Company, et al. and Bristol Hotel Management
         Corporation, et al. v. Aetna Casualty & Surety Company, et
         al.) - suit is still pending;

     (4) New Jersey (Foodarama Supermarkets, Inc., et al. v. Allianz
         Insurance Company, et al.) - suit is partially dismissed;

     (5) Illinois (CR/PL Management Co., et al. v. Allianz Insurance
         Company Group, et al.) - suit is partially dismissed;

     (6) Pennsylvania (Foodarama Supermarkets, Inc. v. American
         Insurance Company, et al.) - suit is dismissed;

     (7) Missouri (American Freightways Corporation, et al. v. American
         Insurance Co., et al.) - suit is partially dismissed;

     (8) California (Bristol Hotels & Resorts, et al. v. NCCI, et
         al.) - appeals court reverses dismissal of suit by lower
         court;

     (9) Texas (Sandwich Chef of Texas, Inc., et al. v. Reliance
         National Indemnity Insurance Company, et al.) - defendant's
         motion to dismiss denied;

    (10) Alabama (Alumax Inc., et al. v. Allianz Insurance
         Company, et al.) - suit is partially dismissed;

    (11) Michigan (Alumax, Inc., et al. v. National Surety Corp., et
         al.) - defendants' motion to dismiss denied;

    (12) Kentucky (Payless Cashways, Inc. et al. v. National Surety
         Corp. et al.) - defendants' motion to dismiss denied;

    (13) New York (Burnham Service Corp. v. American Motorists
         Insurance Company, et al.) - suit is dismissed; and

    (14) Arizona (Albany International Corp. v. American Home Assurance
         Company, et al.) - suit is partially dismissed.

The Company has vigorously defended all of these cases and intends to
continue doing so.


UNITED LIBERTY: Policyholders File Suit in Ohio For Unpaid Dividends
--------------------------------------------------------------------
United Liberty Life Insurance faces a class action pending in Ohio
State Court on behalf or all policyholders whose polices were issued in
Ohio and were still in force in 1993.

The suit refers to a particular class of life insurance policies that
the Company issued over a period of years ending around 1971.  The suit
alleges that the Company's dividend payments on these policies from
1993 through 1999 were less than the required amount.  The suit did not
specify the amount of the alleged underpayment but implies a maximum of
about $850,000.  

The suit also alleges that the Company is liable to pay punitive
damages, also in an unspecified amount, for breach of an implied
covenant of good faith and fair dealing to the plaintiffs in relation
to the dividends.  

Pre-trial discovery is continuing.  The Company has filed a motion for
summary judgment to which the plaintiffs have not yet responded.  
Although the Company has requested mediation of the action, the
plaintiffs would not agree to the request for mediation until the
Company made an offer to settle the case.  

Consequently, the Company has offered to settle the matter for payments
over time, which would include attorneys' fees, and which would be
contingent upon an exchange or reformation of the insurance policies  
currently owned by the members of the class for policies with an
increased premium and a set dividend.  

The Company has denied the material allegations of the suit and is
defending the action vigorously.  At this stage of the litigation, the
Company is unable to determine whether an unfavorable outcome of the
action is likely to occur or alternatively, whether the chance of such
an outcome is remote.

ADELPHIA COMMUNICATIONS: Pomerantz Haudek Lodges Securities Suit in PA
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Pomerantz Haudek Block Grossman and Gross LLP corrected the class
period in the securities class action it filed against Adelphia
Communications Corporation (Nasdaq:ADLAC) in the United States District
Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania.  The suit was filed on
behalf of purchasers from April 2,2001 through March 26,2002.

The suit charges the Company with manipulating its financial statements
whereupon it misrepresented its earnings and financial results, thereby
artificially inflating its stock price by improper accounting
practices.  The suit charges the Company and five of its senior
officers with violations of Sections 10(b) and 20(a) of the Securities
Exchange Act of 1934.

On March 27, 2002, the Company disclosed for the first time in
conjunction with fiscal 2001 financial results that it was liable for
at least $2.3 billion in debt related to the co-borrowing guarantees
entered into with Highland Holdings, a third party controlled by the
defendants.  Following the announcement, the price of Company stock
fell to $16.70 per share, a loss of approximately 20% of the value of
the stock from the previous trading day. During the class period,
Company shares traded as high as $45 per share.

ADVANCED SWITCHING: Wechsler Harwood Lodges Securities Suit in E.D. VA
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Wechsler Harwood Halebian & Feffer LLP initiated a securities class
action on behalf of an investor in the United States District Court for
the Eastern District of Virginia on behalf of purchasers who purchased
Advanced Switching Communications, Inc. (Nasdaq: ASCX) publicly traded
securities between October 5, 2000 and February 12, 2002, inclusive.

The suit alleges that the Company and certain of its officers and
directors violated the federal securities laws by issuing materially
false and misleading statements throughout the class period that had
the effect of artificially inflating the market price of the Company's
securities.

Specifically, the suit alleges that throughout the class period,
defendants issued a series of misstatements concerning shipment and
capabilities of the Company's A-4000 product, the A-4500, and a $24
million contract with Qwest Communications.  On February 5, 2002, the
Company announced liquidation and subsequently announced on February
12, 2002, that one of its principal customers sought a $17 million
refund due to defective products.

ANIKA THERAPEUTICS: MA Court Grants Final Approval To $1.25M Settlement
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
The United States District Court for the District of Massachussetts
approved the US$1.25 million settlement proposed by Anika Therapeutics,
Inc. to settle the consolidated securities class action pending against
the Company and:

     (1) J. Melville Engle, former chief executive officer, and

     (2) Sean Moran, former chief financial officer

The consolidated suit was filed on behalf of all purchasers of the
Company's shares between April 15, 1998 and May 30, 2000.  The suit
alleges that the Company and the individual defendants violated the
federal securities laws by making material misrepresentations and
omissions in certain public disclosures during the class period.  The
alleged misrepresentations and omissions relate to the Company's
historical revenue recognition policies and its restatement of revenues
for 1998 and the first three quarters of 1999.

In December 2000, the defendants each filed motions to dismiss the
suit, which the plaintiffs opposed.  Before the court decided the
motions to dismiss, the parties reached agreement on the terms of a
potential settlement of the action.  Accordingly, the parties
negotiated and entered into a Memorandum of Understanding dated March
8, 2001 and the parties negotiated and entered into a stipulation and
agreement of settlement, compromise and release, which contains the
terms of a settlement of the action, subject to approval by the court.

The Court later entered an order of preliminary approval in connection
with the settlement proceedings.  After preliminary approval, the
plaintiffs' counsel sent notice of the proposed settlement to the
class, and the Company paid $1.25 million into a settlement fund that
may, among other things, be used to pay authorized members of the
class.  

The Court originally scheduled the final settlement hearing for August
8, 2001.  Pursuant to the joint request of counsel for the plaintiffs
and counsel for the Company, the hearing was extended because of the
restatement of financial results for certain prior periods filed in the
Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2000. The
final settlement hearing was held on October 22, 2001, and the Court
gave the settlement final approval.


AT&T CORPORATION: Lovell Stewart Files Securities Suit in S.D. of NY
--------------------------------------------------------------------
Lovell & Stewart, LLP initiated a securities class action alleging
misstatements and omissions of material fact that artificially inflated
the market price of the common stock of At Home Corporation (d/b/a
Excite@Home) (OTCBB:ATHMQ.OB).  The suit was filed on behalf of all
persons who purchased, converted, exchanged or otherwise acquired the
common stock of At Home Corp. between March 28, 2000 and August 28,
2001, inclusive, in the United States District Court for the Southern
District of New York.

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 seeks to recover damages.  The suit alleges that AT&T
Corporation and certain current and former officers and directors of
Excite@Home violated the federal securities laws by making
misstatements regarding, and by failing to disclose adverse material
facts regarding, Excite@Home's business and financial condition and
AT&T's true intentions with respect to At Home Corp. and the
Excite@Home broadband network during the class period.

Specifically, the suit alleges that defendants failed to disclose that
Excite@Home was burning through its cash at a substantially higher rate
than indicated in its filings with the SEC and in other public
statements and that At Home had obtained $100 million worth of
convertible note financing in June 2001 based on alleged
misrepresentations that subjected the company to the threat of
immediate claims that could put it into bankruptcy.

The suit further alleges that defendants affirmatively misrepresented
the amount of cash that At Home would need to finance its ongoing
operations for the calendar year 2001 by falsely stating in April 2001
that an additional $85 million in financing would be sufficient to meet
Excite@Home's needs for cash during 2001.

Despite obtaining a total of $185 million in new financing, the
complaint alleges, on September 29, 2001, At Home announced that it
would seek bankruptcy protection, and on October 23, 2001, At Home
Corp.'s share price hit a 52-week low of four cents per share.

The suit further alleges that defendant AT&T Corporation, which at all
relevant times held a 74% voting interest in Excite@Home, is liable for
the foregoing under Section 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of
1934 based on its status as a control person of Excite@Home.

CALPINE CORPORATION: Schiffrin Barroway Lodges Securities Suit in CA
--------------------------------------------------------------------
Schiffrin & Barroway, LLP initiated a securities class action in the
United States District Court for the Northern District of California
against Calpine Corporation (NYSE:CPN), on behalf of purchasers of the
Company's shares between January 5,2001 and December 13,2001.

The suit alleges the Company misled shareholders about its business and
financial condition, and seeks damages for violations of Sections 10(b)
and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.

The suit alleges that the California-based Company owns, develops,
acquires, and operates power-generation facilities and sells
electricity and steam, primarily in the US Calpine's stock, which went
public in 1996, on a split adjusted basis, went from $2 at the IPO
stage to over $33 in January 2001.

The suit alleges that the Company's stock price was very important
because the Company was planning at this time to build or acquire $15
billion of plants over the next four years. The financing for these
plants was based on the performance of its stock because many of its
bond buyers were looking to convert to common stock. If the stock did
not perform, financing would be difficult to fund the Company's
expansion.

However, certain of the Company's manipulative transactions, including
those with Enron, such as inflated revenues, began to emerge on
December 9, 2001.

On December 14, 2001, prior to the market opening, Moody's Investors
Service announced that it might cut the credit rating on the Company's
$11.6 billion of debt to junk.  In response, Company shares plummeted
to $12.50, a more than 26% drop.  Then, after the close of the market
on December 14, 2001, Moody's Investors Service announced that it had
in fact cut its rating of the Company's debt to junk.

As now revealed, at all times during the class period, defendants
issued false and misleading statements and press releases concerning
the Company's sale of and demand for power and the Company's ability to
generate sufficient cash revenue to service its debt.  During the class
period, before the disclosure of the true facts, the individual
defendants sold their personally held common stock generating more than
$34 million in proceeds and the Company raised billions of dollars in a
series of debt offerings.

CAPSTONE TURBINE: Mounting Vigorous Defense V. Securities Suit in NY
--------------------------------------------------------------------
Capstone Turbine Corporation faces a securities class action filed in
the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York
against the Company, two of its officers, and the underwriters of its
initial public offering. The suit was filed on behalf of purchasers of
the Company's common stock during the period from June 28, 2000 to
December 6, 2000.

The suit alleges that the underwriter defendants agreed to allocate
stock in the Company's initial public offering to certain investors in
exchange for excessive and undisclosed commissions and agreements by
those investors to make additional purchases of stock in the
aftermarket at pre-determined prices.  The suit further alleges that
the prospectus for the Company's initial public offering was false and
misleading in violation of the securities laws because it did not
disclose these arrangements.

The Company understands that over three hundred other issuers have been
named as defendants in nearly identical lawsuits filed by some of the
same plaintiffs' law firms.  The Company intends to defend these
actions vigorously.


CLARUS CORPORATION: Asks GA Court For Securities Suit Dismissal  
---------------------------------------------------------------
Clarus Corporation asked the United States District Court for the
Northern District of Georgia to dismiss the consolidated securities
class action pending against the Company and certain of its directors
and officers. The suit purports to be on behalf of all purchasers of
the Company's common stock from October 20,1999 to October 25,2000.

The suit alleges claims against the defendants for violations of
Sections 10(b) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as
amended, and Rule 10b-5 promulgated thereunder with respect to alleged
material misrepresentations and omissions in public filings made with
the Securities and Exchange Commission and certain press releases and
other public statements made by the Company and certain of its officers
relating to its business, results of operations, financial condition
and future prospects.  As a result of these misstatements and
omissions, the market price of the Company's common stock was
artificially inflated during the class period.

The Company believes that it has complied with all of its obligations
under the federal securities laws and intends to defend this lawsuit
vigorously. As a result of consultation with legal representation and
current insurance coverage, the Company does not believe the lawsuit
will have a material impact on its results of operations or financial
position.


DEPARTMENT 56: Asks MN Court To Dismiss Suit For Securities Violations
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Department 56, Inc. asked the United States District Court for the
District of Minnesota to dismiss the securities class action filed
against it and its Chief Executive Officer, Susan E. Engel, on behalf
of purchasers of the Company's stock from February 24,1999 to April
26,2000.  

The suit alleges the defendants violated federal securities laws by
making a series of false and misleading statements concerning the
Company's financial statements.

The Court heard oral arguments on the Company's motion to dismiss on
March 22, 2002, but has not yet released a decision.  The Company
intends to defend this lawsuit vigorously, but it is unable to predict
the outcome of these proceedings or to reasonably estimate the impact,
if any, that the ultimate resolution of these matters will have on its
results of operations, financial position or cash flows.


EAGLE BUILDING: Berman DeValerio Commences Securities Suit in S.D. FL
---------------------------------------------------------------------
Berman DeValerio Pease Tabacco Burt & Pucillo initiated a securities
class action against Eagle Building Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq:EGBT),
accusing the Company and its former chairman of misleading investors.  
The suit is pending in the United States District Court for the
Southern District of Florida, West Palm Beach Division, on behalf of
all investors who bought the Company's common stock from April 18, 2001
through February 14, 2002

According to the suit, the Company reported fabricated revenue from its
construction business in India and deceived the public about the nature
of its Indian operations.  The suit also says that the defendants
issued false statements about purportedly "revolutionary" airport
security technology in a news release issued two weeks after the
September 11, 2001 attacks on New York and Washington.

On February 14, 2002, the Company announced that it would be forced to
issue earnings restatements for fiscal years 2000 and 2001.  That same
day, the complaint said, the United States Securities and Exchange
Commission began an investigation into the Company's foreign operations
and its post-September 11 statements about an airport security system,
mail sterilization technology and money laundering detection software.

News of the alleged fraud triggered a sharp drop in the Company's stock
price, which had traded as high as $12.30 a share during the class
period.  On February 14, the Company's share price fell 68% to $1.44.

ENRON CORPORATION: Nine Banks Added To Billion-Dollar Securities Suit
---------------------------------------------------------------------
An amended complaint of 503 pages, in a consolidated class action
against fallen energy trader Enron Corporation, was filed in the United
States District Court, in Houston, Texas, by lead counsel, the law firm
of Milberg Weiss Bershad Hynes & Lerach LLP, the Charleston Gazette
reported.  The original $25 billion lawsuit was filed in December on
behalf of large investors, with the University of California, which
lost millions of dollars when Enron collapsed, as lead plaintiff.

The new consolidated complaint includes more than three dozen new
defendants, chief among them being nine major banks and two national
law firms.  The apparent reason for the new filing appears to be an
intensification of effort to recoup billions of dollars for investors
in the now-bankrupt Enron Corporation.  The financial landscape looks
bleak, what with Enron bankrupt and Andersen losing clients daily - the
plaintiffs need new defendants with money or assets to pay off if they
win, or reach a settlement stage.

Included in the roster of new defendants are nine of the most reputable
and financially sound investment banks in the country.  They are:  

     (1) J.P. Morgan Chase & Co.,

     (2) Citigroup, Inc.,

     (3) Credit Suisse First Boston USA Inc.,

     (4) Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce (CIBC),

     (5) Bank of America Corporation,

     (6) Merrill Lynch & Co.,

     (7) Barclays Bank PLC,

     (8) Deutsche Bank AG and

     (9) Lehman Brothers Holding Inc.

Essentially, the new consolidated complaint alleges that the nine
investment banks financed lucrative schemes that helped Enron
Corporation maintain its pre-collapse image as a profit powerhouse,
according to the consolidated complaint and the Charleston Gazette.

William Lerach, lead attorney in the case, says the banks' knowledge of
the questionable partnerships and financial vehicles gave them an
inside view of Enron's financial condition as they, the banks, sold
securities to investors, according to the consolidated complaint, and
as reported by the Charleston Gazette.

The structures (the SPEs or special partnerships), backed by Enron
stock, and in part developed and funded by the banks, allegedly hid
debt and inflated profits.  Their ability to go unnoticed depended on
sustaining a high stock price, since drops in shares would trigger debt
payments that would require Enron to issue more shares and reduce
shareholder equity.  

The new consolidated complaint alleges that "this fraudulent scheme
could not have been and was not perpetrated only by Enron and its
insiders.  It was designed and/or perpetrated only via the active and
knowing involvement of" Enron's law firms, banks and accounting firm.


FLAG TELECOM: Cauley Geller Commences Securities Fraud Suit in S.D. NY
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Cauley Geller Bowman & Coates, LLP initiated a securities class action
in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New
York on behalf of purchasers of FLAG Telecom Holdings, Ltd. (Nasdaq:
FTHL) common stock during the period between March 23, 2001 and
February 13, 2002, inclusive.  The suit names as defendants the Company
and:

     (1) Andres Bande, CEO and Chairman,

     (2) Edward McCormack, Chief Operating Officer,

     (3) Andrew Evans, Chief Technology Officer and

     (4) Larry Bautista, Chief Financial Officer until August 2001

The suit charged the defendants with issuing false and misleading
statements concerning its business and financial condition.  
Specifically, the suit alleges that throughout the class period, the
Company reported strong year-over-year revenue growth.

Unbeknownst to investors, however, as alleged in the complaint, the
Company was experiencing diminishing revenue growth.  The suit alleges
that in order to create the impression that:

     (1) the Company was continuing to experience growth; and

     (2) the Company engaged in a series of reciprocal transactions
         with certain competitors for the purchase and sale of dark
         fiber optic cable - the so-called dark fiber swap.

The suit alleges that as a result of these transactions, the Company
artificially inflated its operating results and materially
misrepresented its financial results at all relevant times.

GILAT SATELLITE: Bernstein Liebhard Commences Securities Suit in NY
-------------------------------------------------------------------
Bernstein Liebhard and Lifshitz LLP initiated a securities class action
on behalf of all persons who acquired Gilat Satellite Networks, Ltd.
(NASDAQ: GILTF) securities between November 13, 2000 and October 2,
2001, in the United States District Court, Eastern District of New
York, against the Company, Yoel Gat and Yoav Libovitch.

The suit alleges that defendants violated 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 November 13, 2000 and October 2, 2001, thereby
artificially inflating the price of Company securities.

Prior to and throughout the class period, as alleged in the complaint,
the Company issued a series of materially false and misleading
statements which materially misrepresented its financial condition and
results because, among other things, the Company was improperly
delaying the writedown of tens of millions of dollars of inventory and
investments which were impaired and of diminishing value.

In addition, the Company failed to disclose that its StarBand division
was experiencing significant difficulties attracting customers and was
not generating the revenues for the Company that defendants had caused
the market to expect.

On October 2, 2001, the last day of the class period, the Company
issued a press release announcing that its financial results for the
third quarter of 2001 would be below previously announced guidance and
that it was taking additional charges.  The Company reported that
revenues for the third quarter were expected to be $80 million - as
compared to the $150 million announced on May 14, 2001 - and that the
Company expected to report a loss of $267 million or approximately
$11.40 per share.

Following this announcement, the price of Company shares dropped from
$5.38 per share to $3.32 per share, a decline of more than 38% on heavy
trading volume.

----------------------------------------------------------------------
Graphic Packaging International Corporation faces a class action filed
on February 19, 2002 in the United States District Court for Jefferson
County, Colorado against the Company and certain of its shareholders
and directors.

HUB GROUP: Labels "Without Merit" Securities Fraud Suit in E.D. IL
------------------------------------------------------------------
Hub Group, Inc. vowed to vigorously defend against several class
actions pending in the United States District Court for the Northern
District of Illinois, Eastern Division against the Company, its current
and former officers who signed its recent periodic reports filed with
the Securities and Exchange Commission and its auditors.

The suits uniformly allege that the defendants violated Section 10(b)
and Rule 10b-5 thereunder and Section 20(a) of the Securities Exchange
Act of 1934 by filing or causing to be filed with the Securities and
Exchange Commission periodic reports that contained inaccurate
financial statements.

The Company believes that this suit is without merit.  However, it
stated in a disclosure to the SEC that an adverse judgment in this
lawsuit could have a material adverse affect on its financial position
and results of operations.


JDS UNIPHASE: Wolf Haldenstein Commences Securities Suit in N.D. CA
-------------------------------------------------------------------
Wolf Haldenstein Adler Freeman & Herz LLP launched a securities class
action in the United States District Court for the Northern District of
California on behalf of purchasers of JDS Uniphase Corporation (NASDAQ:
JDSU) securities between July 27, 1999 and July 26, 2001, inclusive,
against the Company and certain of its officers and directors.

The suit alleges that defendants violated the federal securities laws
by issuing materially false and misleading statements throughout the
class period that had the effect of artificially inflating the market
price of the Company's securities.

Throughout the class period, defendants depicted to the investing
public that the Company's demand was robust and that its prospects for
the future, through the end of fiscal 2001, were superb.  A conference
call on July 27, 1999 relayed that the Company was on track to report
60% year-over-year net income growth. Defendants also claimed that the
Company had numerous engineers observing its clients and their amount
of inventory, allowing the Company to be aware of future slowdowns in
demand.

The suit also alleges that the defendants distorted the financial
benefits of the acquisitions of Optical Coating Labs, Cronos Integrated
Microsystems, E-Tek Dynamics and SDL Inc., among others and claimed the
Company was not as dependant on clients such as Lucent and Nortel as it
truly was.

During the class period, 25.2 million shares of the Company stock were
sold or disposed for $2.1 billion by the individual defendants and the
Company's controlling shareholder.  On July 26, 2001, the 3rd Quarter
results for fiscal 2001 were restated.  Also, the Company announced a
$44 billion write-off in goodwill concerning its acquisitions,
inventory write-downs, and that its fiscal 2001 EPS would be only $0.16
and that in fiscal 2002, it would assume a loss of $0.15.

Pursuant to this news, the Company's shares fell as low as $7.90, a 94%
decline of the class period high of $146.32.

         alleged misstatements and omissions under Section 20(a) of the

         in January 2000;

    (iv) defendant GTL is liable under Section 12(2)(a) of the
         Securities Act for untrue statements of material facts in or
         omissions of material facts from a prospectus and prospectus
         supplement relating to the sale of shares of GTL common stock
         in January 2000; and

     (v) defendants Loral and Schwartz are secondarily liable under
         Section 15 of the Securities Act for GTL's primary violations
         of Sections 11 and 12(2)(a) of the Securities Act as alleged

The class of plaintiffs on whose behalf the lawsuit has been asserted
consists of all buyers of securities of Globalstar, Globalstar Capital
and GTL during the period from December 6, 1999 through October 27,
2000, excluding the defendants and certain persons related or
affiliated therewith.

The Company intends to vigorously defend against the suit.

suit.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Schiffrin & Barroway, LLP initiated a securities class action in the
United States District Court for the District of New Jersey against
Measurement Specialties, Inc. (AMEX:MSS), claiming the Company misled

the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 on behalf of all investors who
bought Measurement Specialties, Inc. securities between August 1, 2001

prospectus issued in connection with the Offering misrepresented and
omitted material facts concerning the Company's financial results.  
Furthermore, during the class period, and in violation of generally
accepted accounting principles, defendants caused the Company to
falsely report favorable financial results by, among other things,
improperly recognizing revenues and overstating inventories.

during the class period.

METAWAVE COMMUNICATIONS: Schiffrin Barroway Files Securities Suit in WA
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Schiffrin and Barroway LLP initiated a securities class action against
Metawave Communications Corporation (Nasdaq:MTWV) claiming that the
company misled investors about its business and financial condition.  
The suit was filed in the United States District Court for the Western
District of Washington on behalf of all investors who bought the
Company's securities between April 25, 2001 and March 14, 2002.

The suti alleges that the Company's SpotLight systems provide a
solution for wireless network operators facing capacity constraints
within their networks.  The Company's systems reportedly increase
overall network capacity, improve or maintain network quality, reduce
network operating costs, and manage network infrastructure.

The complaint alleges that during the class period, defendants caused
the Company's shares to trade at artificially inflated levels through
the issuance of false and misleading financial statements. As a result
of this inflation, the company was able to complete private placement
offerings, raising net proceeds of $30 million during the class period.

On March 14, 2002, just months after the last offering was completed,
the Company revealed that its FY 2001 results were false when issued.
The stock dropped below $1 per share on this news.

ONYX ACCEPTANCE: Appeals Court Upholds Dismissal of NY Securities Suit
----------------------------------------------------------------------
The United States Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals upheld the dismissal
of a class action filed against Onyx Acceptance Corporation, alleging
violations of federal securities laws.

The suit was initially commenced in January 2000 against the Company
and certain of its officers and directors in the United States District
Court for the Central District of California.  The suit alleges
violations of of Section 10(b) and 20(a) of the Securities and Exchange
Act of 1934 arising from the Company's prior use of the cash-in method
of measuring and accounting for credit enhancement assets in the
financial statements.

The Company asserted that its previous use of the cash-in method of
measuring and accounting for credit enhancement assets was consistent
with then current generally accepted accounting principles and
accounting practices of other finance companies.

The Federal Court later dismissed the suit with prejudice, but the
plaintiffs appealed this decision to the Ninth Circuit Court.

The Company intends to vigorously defend itself against such
proceedings, but concedes there is a chance that its results of
operations, financial condition and cash flows could be materially and
adversely affected by unfavorable outcomes.


ROADHOUSE GRILL: Fine Hatfield Initiates Securities Suit in S.D. FL
-------------------------------------------------------------------
Fine & Hatfield launched a securities class action in the United States

against defendants the Company and certain of its officers and
directors.

The suit asserts claims against defendants for violations of Section
10(b) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and Rule 10b-5
promulgated thereunder.  The suit alleges that as a result of
materially false and misleading statements concerning the Company's
products, operations, and financial results, the Company's securities
traded at artificially inflated prices during the class period.

The complaint alleges that the artificial inflation continued until the
Company admitted that it would be forced to restate its prior
overstated and inflated financial results.

SECURE COMPUTING: Trial In CA Securities Fraud Suit Set For June 2003
---------------------------------------------------------------------
Trial in the consolidated securities class action pending against
Secure Computing Corporation and certain of its present and former
directors and officers in the United States District Court for the
Northern District of California will begin on June 23, 2003.

The suit arose from several class actions commenced in April 1999 on
behalf of individuals who acquired the Company's stock between November
10, 1998 and March 31, 1999.  The suit alleges that the defendants made
false and misleading statements about the Company's business condition
and prospects in violation of Sections 10(b) and 20(a) of the
Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and SEC Rule 10b-5.

The Company asked the Court to dismiss the suit in August 2001, but the
Court denied the motion.  Discovery is proceeding in the suit.

Certain of the Company's former and current officers and directors also
face a purported derivative action in California Superior Court, Santa
Clara County, with the Company named as nominal defendant.  The
derivative action makes essentially the same factual allegations as the
securities class actions and alleges various causes of action,
including that the defendants breached their corporate fiduciary
duties.

The Company believes that there are meritorious defenses to this action
and intends to defend itself vigorously.  However, it stated in a
disclosure to the Securities and Exchange Commission that an
unfavorable resolution could have a material adverse effect on its
business, results of operations and financial condition.


SILICON IMAGE: Mounting Vigorous Defense V. Securities Suit in S.D. NY
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Silicon Image, Inc. faces a securities class action pending in the
United States District Court for the Southern District of New York
alleging federal securities violations on behalf of purchasers of the
securities of Silicon Image Inc. between October 5, 1999 and December
6, 2000, inclusive.  The suit names the Company, certain of its
officers and directors, and its underwriters as defendants.

The suit alleges violations of Sections 11, 12(a)(2) and 15 of the
Securities Act of 1933 and Section 10(b) of the Securities Exchange Act
of 1934 and Rule 10b-5 promulgated thereunder.  The suit specifically
alleges that the defendants were part of a scheme to manipulate the
price of the Company's stock in the aftermarket following the Company's
initial public offering.

Response to the suit and discovery in this action on behalf of the
Company and individual defendants has been stayed by order of the
court.  The suit is proceeding as part of a coordinated action of over
300 such cases brought by plaintiffs in the Southern District of New
York.

The Company believes the suit is without merit and intends to
vigorously oppose the suit.  At this time, however, the Company cannot
opine as to the outcome of this lawsuit.

New York against the Company and:

     (1) Francis R. McAllister,

     (2) James A. Sabala and

     (3) Harry C. Smith.

The suit alleges that defendants violated 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 20, 2001 and April 1, 2002, thereby artificially
inflating the price of Company securities.

Throughout the class period, as alleged in the complaint, the Company
issued a series of materially false and misleading statements regarding
its financial performance and filed reports confirming such performance
with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission.

The suit alleges that these statements were materially false and
misleading because, among other things:

     (i) the Company improperly classified "mineralized material" as
         "probable reserves;"

    (ii) defendants' improper manipulation of probable reserves
         overstated the Company's class period net income because
         defendants depreciated the Company's plant and equipment costs
         according of the life of these reserves. If defendants had
         properly accounted for these reserves, depreciation would have
         occurred much faster; and

   (iii) the reduction in probable reserves will likely result in an
         impairment charge, or a restatement of at least fiscal year
         2001 results.

Furthermore, defendants failed to disclose that the SEC had advised the
Company by mid-December 2001/ early January 2002 that its methodology
for the calculation of probable ore reserves was improper and would
have to be changed.

On April 2, 2002, when defendants belatedly disclosed that the
Company's accounting practices had been condemned by the SEC, the stock
dropped by 24% in one day on extraordinarily high volumes of 4,743,600
shares traded, vastly greater than the Company's average trading volume
of approximately 400,000 shares per day. The full extent of the
Company's losses is still unknown to the market, since the revision to
reserves could adversely impact 2001 net income, and result in a
downward financial restatement of prior quarters.

UNDERWRITERS LITIGATION: Probe Over Stock Recommendations Expanded
------------------------------------------------------------------
New York's attorney general expanded its investigation on the accuracy
and honesty of Wall Street analysts in their advice on what stocks to
buy to include six other firms aside from Merill Lynch & Co., the only
publicly-named focus of the probe.  

"The investigation is extensive and it goes far beyond Merrill Lynch,"
Marc Violette, spokesman for Attorney General Eliot Spitzer, told
Associated Press.  "The investigation also involves a number of other
very prominent Wall Street investment banks."  Mr. Violette declined to
mention the other investment banks, but a source familiar with the
investigation told Associated Press that the firms being investigated
are:

     (1) Goldman Sachs Group Inc.;

     (2) Credit Suisse First Boston, a unit of Credit Suisse Group;

     (3) Morgan Stanley Dean Witter & Co.;

     (4) the UBS PaineWebber division of UBS AG;

     (5) the Salomon Smith Barney unit of Citigroup Inc.; and

     (6) Bear Sterns Co.

In a report on its Web site Wednesday, The Wall Street Journal said
Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc. and Lazard Freres were also among the
firms that have received subpoenas or would receive them shortly.

The attorney generals office last week obtained a court order requiring
Merrill Lynch to make detailed disclosures on its business.  A 10-month
investigation allegedly showed the Company had lied to clients and
recommended shares they knew were bad investments.  According to the
Associated Press, critics say analysts often promote stocks they cover
so their firms can get lucrative merger and acquisition or stock
underwriting fees from those same companies.

Merrill Lynch has denied the allegations and is currently looking for
other legal options.  

Eric R. Dinallo, the attorney general's bureau chief for investment
protection, said Merrill Lynch and other brokerages must reform the way
they go about recommending stocks so individuals can make educated
decisions about their investments.  "Our goal is to make sure that
individual investors can have faith in the investment advice they
receive from Wall Street," Dinallo told AP. "It appears from our
investigation that many investors may have been badly served by
investment analysts operating with severe conflicts of interests."

The other investment firms have not released any comments on the
investigation.
