Item 8.01.  Other Events.

As previously disclosed, LivePerson, Inc. (the “Company”) received written notification in September 2005 from a former employee alleging claims related to improper termination of employment. On May 11, 2006, Ms. Lisa E. Cash filed a suit against the Company, Robert LoCascio and Timothy E. Bixby in the Supreme Court of New York State, containing claims of improper termination of employment and related claims.

The Company and the individual defendants believe that the claims are without merit, and intend to vigorously defend against them. The Company expects that, should any material loss result from an unsuccessful defense against such claims, existing insurance coverage will be sufficient to cover any such loss. The Company has not accrued for this contingency as of the date hereof, because the amount of loss, if any, is not expected to exceed available insurance coverage. However, the Company cannot assure you that its defenses will be successful and, if they are not, that the Company’s ultimate liability in connection with the claims will not exceed its insurance coverage or have a material adverse effect on the Company’s business, results of operations, financial condition, or cash flows.
