Plaintiffs Seek To Include Non Us Holders In Shell Suit

Lead plaintiffs in a U.S. class action against Royal Dutch Shell PLC (RDSB.LN) filed Wednesday a motion seeking consent for non-U.S. shareholders to join the legal action, one of the lawyer representing them said Friday.

The motion follows a preliminary decision by a New Jersey judge, in August, that permitted a plaintiffs claim to continue on behalf of both U.S. and non-U.S. investors, said John Keefe, Jr., a lawyer with Keefe Law Firm.
