What is a class action lawsuit? 

A Securities Class Action is a type of lawsuit in which one individual, or a group,  generally referred to as the “Lead Plaintiff”, files a suit and represents everyone who suffered a similar loss as a result of the defendants' fraudulent conduct.   The Lead Plaintiff is responsible for prosecuting claims on behalf of the class.

Can I participate in the recovery?

You may be eligible if you are a member of the class. For example if you purchased the securities during the class period and the purchase resulted in a loss.  

 

What if I didn’t sell my stock during this period?

You may still participate if you suffered damages as a result of the defendants' misconduct. 

 

What is the class period?

The class period is the time frame during which the fraud occurred.  The class period generally ends when there is a disclosure of accurate information about the company that corrects  the fraudulent omission or misrepresentation   If you acquired securities during the class period you may be eligible to participate in any recovery if the law suit is successful. 

 

What does it mean to be the “Lead Plaintiff”? 

In order to have a representative of the plaintiff class overseeing the litigation, the court will appoint a single plaintiff or a small group of plaintiffs as the Lead Plaintiff. This usually based upon which Plaintiff suffered the largest financial loss.  The Lead Plaintiff is responsible for managing the litigation primarily by overseeing and monitoring the progress of the action directing counsel.  Arons & Arons, LLC works with lead plaintiffs to ensure that their role is effectively performed. 

How do I become the Lead Plaintiff in a Securities Class Action?

When a class action is filed, the filing plaintiff must publish notice of the filing publicly advising investors of the pendency of the class action and to inform any investor that any class member may apply to the court to serve as the Lead Plaintiff. Applications must be made within 60 days of the notice to serve as the Lead Plaintiff. 

 

How much will it cost to be the Lead Plaintiff?

There are no costs. Our firm will not ask you for any money to cover the costs associated with your case regardless of the outcome.
