GT Advanced Technologies Lawsuit alleges fraud

GT Advanced Technologies is in bankruptcy and the stock is near worthless because the company’s contract with Apple to provide production of sapphire material went into the toilet.   This case attempts to partially recover investor losses from the underwriters who raised money for the company and any insurance policies in effect during the class period.  The basic questions are whether senior executives oversold the value of the Apple contract and undersold the liquidity issues with GT Advanced Technologies’ performance under that contract.

AcelRx Lawsuit:  Optical error rates

AcelRx makes a novel pain dispensing device called Zalviso. Starting in late 2013, its stock went on a tear after the company announced that the FDA had approved AcelRx’s submission of its New Drug Application (“NDA”) for Zalviso.  Fast forward 8 months.  AcelRx discloses that the FDA has real problems with frankly basic provisions of AcelRx’s NDA.  These problems will delay Zalviso’s to-market date by perhaps 18 months if not longer.  (18 months is a life time for a development stage drug company with limited cash.)  Did executives then overstate to investors the likelihood of the FDA approving its NDA?  Do these overstatements constitute securities fraud?  

Bankrate lawsuit alleges securities fraud

EDMC charged with securities fraud

Education Management is a for profit college.  The entire industry has come under the microscope for a host of deceptive practices in how colleges enroll students, report student loans to the government and report assets on their respective balance sheets.  For the last number of years, senior executives at Education Management have assured investors that it does not suffer from these ills.  Through a series of disclosures and revelations, it has become clear that senior executive of Education Management may have misrepresented to investors the company’s involvement with and reliance upon with these industry-wide problems.  This securities lawsuit seeks to revoker for investors monies lost due to these alleged misrepresentations.
