Parmalat discussions urged


Kaplan did not name the plaintiffs but, according to a Parmalat statement, the company has pending litigation in the US against Bank of America, Citigroup, Deloitte & Touche and Grant Thornton. Judge Kaplan has adjourned all proceedings until the new year in the hope that a settlement can be reached. News of his decision sent Parmalat's shares up 3% to e2.99.

The company is eager to recover damages from its banks and auditors in both the US and Italy, asserting they were complicit in the $18 billion collapse, which happened in 2003.
