Seminar – Litigating Innovation: Evidence from Securities Class Action Lawsuits

12:00 - 14:00

Professor Oliver Spalt, University of Mannheim

Low-quality securities class action lawsuits disproportionally target firms with valuable innovation output and lead to substantial shareholder value losses. We establish this fact using data on class action lawsuits between 1996 and 2011 and the value of newly granted patents as a measure of valuable innovation output. Our results challenge the widely held view that greater failure propensity of innovative firms drives their litigation risk. Instead, our findings suggest that valuable innovation output makes a firm an attractive litigation target. Our results support the view that the class action litigation system may have adverse effects on the competitiveness of the US economy.
