Federal Court Upholds Option Timing Complaint

Ausikaritis v. Kiani, No. 12-1175-SLR (D. Del. July 16, 2013)

When stock options are awarded may be important to their actual value.  Get an option when the market price is in the toilet and you will do better when the market turns than with an option granted at the top of the market.  But is option grant timing itself actionable?  This decision says that it is and that a complaint that alleges such timing may withstand a motion to dismiss.
