Read the Complaint

The complaint alleges that defendants issued or caused to be issued materially false and misleading statements to the investing public with respect to the Company’s financial performance and condition during the relevant time.  In addition, the Complaint alleges that during the fourth quarter of 2004 and the first quarter of 2005, defendants, with knowledge or reckless disregard of facts then in their possession, disseminated materially false and misleading projections with respect to GM’s first-quarter and year 2005 revenues, earnings and cash flow. 

During the Class Period, defendants capitalized on the advantageous debt ratings assigned to the Company as a result of defendants’ materially false and misleading statements and omissions, by causing GM to issue more than $18 billion in debt securities. When the true facts finally began to come out at the end of the Class Period, the price of GM stock, which had closed at $32.71 on March 15, 2005, declined by $4.57 per share, or 14%, to close at $28.14 per share on March 16, 2005.  The prices of the Company’s debt securities also declined in the market.

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.
