Ross Aronstam & Moritz, together with Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz, represented URS Corporation and its directors in connection with stockholder litigation challenging URS's acquisition by AECOM in a merger valued at approximately $6 billion. Before closing, the stockholder plaintiffs moved for expedited proceedings in support of a motion for preliminary injunction to enjoin the transaction. Defendants opposed the motion to expedite. On August 5, 2014, the Court of Chancery denied expedition. On August 28, 2014, after a different stockholder filed a second motion to expedite, the Court of Chancery again denied expedition. All plaintiffs voluntarily dismissed their claims.
