http://nycourts.law.com/CourtDocumentViewer.asp?view=Document&docID=46866 Judge Haight PLAINTIFFS FILED a class action seeking damages arising from allegedly fraudulent acts related to the auditing and administration of Lancer Offshore Inc., a hedge fund formed under the laws of the British Virgin Islands. Concurrent to the ongoing development of the instant action, the Securities and Exchange Commission filed a separate but related lawsuit in the Southern District of Florida before Chief Judge William J. Zloch. Lead plaintiff moved for an order pursuant to 28 USC �1404(a) to transfer the case to the Southern District of Florida, specifically to Chief Judge Zloch of that court.
