OU Law Associate Dean for Research and Scholarship Megan Shaner authored a chapter in the recently published Research Handbook on Representative Shareholder Litigation by Griffith, Erickson, Webber and Winship.
Written by leading scholars and judges in the field, the handbook is a modern-day survey of the state of shareholder litigation. Its chapters cover securities class actions, merger litigation, derivative suits, and appraisal litigation, as well as other forms of shareholder litigation. It explores how related issues are addressed across the globe, with examinations of shareholder litigation in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, the European Union, Israel, and China.
Dean Shaner’s chapter, “Stockholder litigation, fiduciary duties, and the officer dilemma,” focuses on shareholder litigation against corporate officers. The chapter explores the causes and consequences of this gap in corporate law, and suggests remedial approaches targeted at officers’ managerial role.
