SHANGHAI, China, Dec. 3, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mecox Lane Limited ("Mecox Lane" or the "Company") (Nasdaq:MCOX), which operates one of China's leading online platforms for apparel and accessories, announced today that the previous judgment of the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York to dismiss a class action lawsuit filed against the Company and several of its officers and directors was affirmed by the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit.

On November 29, 2012, in the case of Westend Group v. Mecox Lane Limited, et al., No. 12-1326-cv, the Court of Appeals affirmed, by a summary order of a three-judge panel, Mecox Lane's victory in District Court, where the plaintiff's claims under Section 11 of the Securities Act, along with derivative claims under Section 15 of the Securities Act, were dismissed without prejudice.
