About the Lawsuit
PetMed Express and certain of its executives are charged with failing to disclose material information during the Class Period, violating federal securities laws.
On August 23, 2017, it was revealed through a comprehensive report issued by Aurelius Value entitled "PetMed: Exploiting America's Opioid Epidemic" that PetMed Express had targeted its products, painkillers especially addictive synthetic opiates, to opioid users through the aggressive use of Google ads and other online marketing services, potentially facilitating the abuse of opiates as "human crossover painkillers."
On this news, the price of PetMed Express shares plummeted.
