About the Lawsuit
Galena and certain of its executives are charged with issuing a series of materially false and misleading statements during the Class Period, violating federal securities laws.
On February 12, 2014, an article on TheStreet.com claimed Galena was engaging in a misleading brand awareness campaign aimed at boosting its stock price and that Galena paid investor relations firm The DreamTeam Group ("DreamTeam") to publish articles under aliases promoting the Company's stock without disclosing who paid for them. On this news, Galena's stock price declined by 16%. Then, on February 14, 2014, Galena disclosed that it had engaged DreamTeam. On this news, Galena's stock price dropped another 14%.
