The Tenth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals Affirms District Court's Dismissal of Securities Fraud Class Action Against Chesapeake Energy

The Tenth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals affirmed a district court's dismissal of a securities fraud class action brought by shareholders against Chesapeake Energy Corporation. Two individual shareholders sued Chesapeake Energy Corp. and certain of its officers, alleging securities fraud arising from misstatements made by the defendants concerning volumetric production payment transactions, under which the firm received immediate cash in exchange for the promise to produce and deliver gas on time. The complaint also alleged misstatements concerning the firm's Founder Well Participation Program, under which Chesapeake CEO Aubrey McClendon was allowed to purchase up to a 2.5% interest in the new gas wells drilled in a given year. After finding the complaint failed to adequately allege scienter, the district court granted the defendants' motion to dismiss, and the plaintiffs appealed.
