Judge Sharp: HCA IPO plaintiffs can be a single class

U.S. District Court Judge Kevin Sharp has ruled that investors suing HCA Holdings over disclosures (or the lack thereof) in the runup to the company's 2011 initial public offering can be treated as a single class. The lead plaintiff in the case is a Massachusetts pension fund. HCA executives are still deliberating about whether to appeal the certification ruling.

"Given defendants' alleged violation of the federal securities law and its impact on a large number of geographically dispersed investor(s), a class action is the superior vehicle for adjudication of the claims," Sharp wrote. "The alternative would be to have (potentially) thousands of individual actions, which is likely impractical for most investors, and which would risk burdening the judicial system."
