In the ongoing saga of the proposed class action litigation against peer-to-peer (p2p) lender Prosper Marketplace (prosper.com), The California Court of Appeals, finding in favor of the lender plaintiffs, has reversed the previous order of the Superior Court to dismiss from the case those defendants known as the “outside director defendants.”
