A Notice of Pendency of Class Action was issued in the class action matter In re Schwab Corp. Securities Litigation currently pending in San Francisco federal court.

The court’s deadline for opting out is December 28, 2009. YieldPlus investors who opt out may want to consider pursuing a claim for their losses through arbitration before the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA), as many investors have already done.
