A case of alleged misrepresentation, market rigging, and other matters with over 300 plaintiffs. Question of how to provide sufficient information to defendants that they could produce documents and prepare for examinations for discovery. Court concluded best approach was to allow a first wave of particulars from at least 10 of the plaintiffs, after which the defendants could file their initial defense. The remaining plaintiffs were required to file their particulars over a six month period, with the defendant free to amend his pleadings as he received details of ther alleged misrepresentations.
