United States District Court for the Southern District of Florida
Donovan Searles is one of the co-counsel actively involved in litigating this securities class action. The suit alleges, among other things, that the defendants issued materially misleading financial statements, registration statements and earnings releases concerning the financial condition and prospects of Hamilton Bancorp. In January 2002, the Court denied defendants’ various motions to dismiss. In 2003, the Court certified a class of purchasers of Hamilton Bancorp securities.
