' Jessica Toonkel reports
that last week U.S. District Court Judge Frederick Motz ruled in favor of Franklin Templeton
] in the lawsuit, six years years after the suits first transferred to the U.S. District Court in Maryland.
Seventeen fund firms faced these class actions, yet only Franklin refused to settle. (In a related suit, Franklin settled with the SEC for $50 million.)
In his ruling last week, Judge Motz claimed that "the record provides ample evidence that FT acted in good faith in attempting to prevent non-arranged market timing in its funds."
