A California judge issued an order granting a joint motion for preliminary approval of settlement in connection with a shareholder derivative lawsuit against NetSol Technologies Inc. and current and former members of the board, according to a Jan. 19 regulatory filing.
On Jan. 9, Superior Court of California Judge Kenneth Freeman said a proposed settlement had been reached in connection with a suit brought by Caleb McArthur in October 2015. The suit alleged that the company breached its fiduciary duty for failure to maintain adequate oversight, abuse of control and gross mismanagement for disseminating false and misleading information related to the release of a platform used to manage multi-country finance and leasing operations.
The settlement, if approved by the court, also resolves another previously disclosed shareholder derivative lawsuit, pending in Nevada state court.
A settlement hearing has been scheduled in Superior Court of California for April 6.
