December 2010 — Partners Jordan Hershman
, co-chair of Bingham’s Securities Litigation Group, and Jason Frank
obtained the dismissal of all claims asserted in a putative class action against Kopin Corporation and its directors and senior officers predicated on allegations of stock-option backdating. The plaintiff sought to obtain an order voiding all the stock options Kopin granted, i.e., more than 11 million stock options, in the nine-year period between 1997 and 2006. In granting Bingham’s motion to dismiss all claims, the court adopted Bingham’s arguments and expressly incorporated by reference into its opinion entire sections of the firm’s briefing. Joining Hershman and Frank on the Kopin team were counsel Bill Harb
; associate Alison Eggers
; Nicole Burhoe
, paralegal specialist; Brenda Kelly
, securities litigation administrative coordinator; and Nicole MacLean Manco
, legal secretary.
