N.Y. Federal Judge Dismisses Bermudian Reinsurer’s Securities Fraud Action

WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. — A New York federal judge has dismissed an action in which a Bermudian reinsurer accused a holding company of violating the Securities Exchange Act by fraudulently inducing it to purchase $5 million in stock, ruling that the transaction was foreign and therefore does not fall under the Act.
