About the Lawsuit
CytRx 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, TheStreet.com published an article accusing Galena Biopharma, Inc. of paying a subsidiary of the stock promotion firm The DreamTeam Group and MissionIR to begin a misleading campaign designed to boost Galena's stock price. Defendant Kriegsman is both CEO of CytRx and a director of Galena.
Thereafter, CytRx's alleged stock-touting practices and employment of the DreamTeam were unveiled. On March 13, 2014, an additional published report alleged that CytRx shares quadrupled during the promotion managed by DreamTeam and that company management edited and approved the paid articles.
On this news, the price of CytRx plummeted.
