A study conducted by Steven Davidoff, along with Notre Dame's Matthew D. Cain, was referenced in an article from Forbes about the myriad of lawsuits involved in business deals.
"This study of M&A litigation by Steven M. Davidoff of Ohio State University and Notre Dame’s Matthew D. Cain found that public-company mergers over $100 million last year drew an average of 6.9 lawsuits each," the article said. "The median fee in those cases was $845,000."
Professor Steven Davidoff wrote an op-ed for the New York Times about Herbalife and the $1 billion short William A. Ackman put on the company after calling it a pyramid scheme. Whether that is true or not, Davidoff says, unfortunately is not what's important.
"The huge swings in Herbalife’s stock price over such news expose a sad truth about Wall Street. Truth doesn’t sometimes matter very much. Instead, as Herb Greenberg at TheStreet.com has written, where the trade will go in the short term is more important," writes Davidoff
