Read the Complaint
The complaint alleges that during the Class Period, Boston Scientific and certain individual defendants violated provisions of the Securities and Exchange Act of 1934, causing its stock to trade at artificially inflated levels. The complaint alleges that Boston Scientific provided highly explicit false and misleading assurances of the Company’s ability to satisfy FDA regulations governing its medical device product quality, as well as affirmative representations as to the Company's knowledge and expertise regarding design, development, marketing approval and sales of its medical devices. The complaint further alleges over $400 million sold in insider trading.
On August 23, 2005, based on the cumulative impact of three separate FDA Warning Letters, investors learned of defendants' broad-based concealment of its broken quality program and the risks the Company faced. As a result, Boston Scientific’s stock price dropped $1.23, or 4.5% to $25.92, on volume of 15.8 million shares -- nearly $19.89 or 43.4% from its Class Period high of $45.81 on April 5, 2004.
MURRAY, FRANK & SAILER LLP and its predecessor firms have devoted its practice to shareholder class actions and complex commercial litigation for more than fifteen years and have recovered hundreds of millions of dollars for shareholders in class actions throughout the United States.
