Defendant filed a registration statement incorporating its prospectus. Plaintiff claimed that the prospectus contained actionable misstatements because it created “the false and misleading impression that strong demand existed for [defendant's] capacity, and that demand was growing.” The court granted defendants’ motions to dismiss for failure to state a claim, but granted plaintiff leave to replead all claims. The court found that plaintiff failed to plead facts showing that the registration statement contained an untrue statement of material fact or omitted to state a required material fact since plaintiff did not allege facts to indicate that the telecommunications company failed to adequately investigate its customers’ ability to pay.
