SAN DIEGO- PRNewswire —November 28, 2017
Shareholder Rights Law Firm Johnson Fistel, LLP today announced that it is investigating whether certain officers or directors of Acorda Therapeutics, Inc. (“Acorda”) (NASDAQ: ACOR) violated federal or state laws.
A Securities Class Action Complaint was filed on behalf of those who purchased securities of Acorda between April 18, 2016 through November 14, 2017.
According to the lawsuit, defendants during the Class Period made materially false and misleading statements and failed to disclose that: (1) tozadenant entailed significant undisclosed safety risks; (2) accordingly, Acorda had overstated tozadenant’s approval prospects and commercial viability; (3) for the foregoing reasons, Acorda had likewise overstated the benefits of the Biotie Acquisition; and (4) as a result, Acorda’s shares traded at artificially inflated prices during the Class Period. When the true details entered the market, the lawsuit claims that investors suffered damages.

If you are a long-term shareholder of Acorda shares and continuously held shares before April 18, 2016, you may have standing to hold Acorda harmless from the damage the officers and directors may have caused by making them personally responsible. You may also be able to assist in reforming the Company’s corporate governance to prevent future wrongdoing.
