Overview: Where foreign shareholders alleged that respondents violated § 10(b) of
the Securities and Exchange Act of 1934 and SEC Rule 10b-5 regarding
securities traded on foreign exchanges, dismissal was warranted because §
10(b) applied only to transactions in securities listed on domestic
exchanges and domestic transactions in other securities.
