Altisource Asset Management (NYSEMKT:AAMC) stock is climbing higher on Thursday after the company posted an update on its legal battle with Blackrock (NYSE:BLK) and PIMCO.

A press release from Altisource reveals progress on the case from a U.S. Virgin Islands Superior Court judge. This judge has found that six of the seven defendants in the trial are in the court’s jurisdiction.

To go along with that, this judge is allowing Altisource Asset Management to move forward with all of its statutory and tort claims against those defendants. That also saw the judge approve a “132-page Recommendation previously issued by the Staff Master assigned to review the pending motions in the case.”

“We are pleased with this pivotal development in the prosecution of our damage claims against these Blackrock and PIMCO defendants […] We look forward to moving the litigation process forward toward trial.”
