Law360, New York (December 3, 2012, 6:32 PM EST) -- A Virginia federal judge on Friday certified a class of Computer Sciences Corp. shareholders who allege that the company hid accounting irregularities and problems with its $5 billion contract with Britain's National Health Service, sending its stock price down when the irregularities came to light.
U.S. District Judge T.S. Ellis III confirmed a class of all investors who bought Computer Sciences Corp. stock between Aug. 5, 2008, and Aug. 9, 2011.
"Whether subclasses may be required will be addressed in the future," he added.
