Can there by corporate scienter without scienter of a corporate agent? The Second Circuit says yes, at least at the pleading stage. The Court, in Teansters Local 445 Freight Division Pension Fund v. Dynex Capital Inc. found that the requisite strong inference of scienter of the corporate defendant had not been made, and vacated the District Court's order denying the motion to dismiss and remanding the case to the District Court.

The decision in that case can be found here.
