She served as Lead Counsel in the class action challenging Roche Holding’s buyout of Genentech, Inc., In re Genentech, Inc. Shareholders Litigation, Civil Action No. 3911-VCS.

No. 6900-CS.  This action arose out of Oracle Corporations acquisition of Pillar Data Systems, Inc.  and alleged that the acquisition of Pillar was unfair to Oracle to Ellison’s benefit. The Court approved the settlement of this case in August, 2014, resulting in Mr. Ellison’s agreeing to return 95% of the amount Oracle pays for Pillar back to Oracle.
