A US Judge dismissed eight lawsuits on Tuesday brought against analyst Mary Meeker, one of a number of experts whom investors have sought to blame for their losses during the dotcom boom and bust.
Morgan Stanley analyst Meeker, whose reputation as an expert commentator soared during the dotcom frenzy, became known as 'Queen of the Internet'.
But investors who followed her advice and lost money claimed in their lawsuits that they lost out because she failed to properly disclose that she advised some of the firms she tipped.
New York Judge Milton Pollack, however, has dismissed "with prejudice" the eight class actions.
In August, he gave plaintiffs' lawyers 30 days to change their case after labelling their complaints "hopelessly redundant" and "in grossly bad taste".
A Morgan Stanley spokesperson said: "We are gratified but not surprised by this decision. We've said consistently that these complaints were publicity stunts masquerading as lawsuits. Mary Meeker's integrity is beyond reproach."
