On November 10, 2016, a lawsuit was filed against Allstate Corp over alleged securities laws violations. The plaintiff alleged that the issued allegedly false and misleading statements and/or failed to disclose adverse information regarding the Company's business and prospects, including that the reason for the sudden spike in its auto claims frequency, which defendants claimed was due to external events beyond the Company's control, including the weather and increased miles driven, was actually the result of Allstate's growth in its auto policy business through higher risk drivers, and that as a result of defendants' allegedly false statements and/or omissions, Allstate Corp stock traded at artificially inflated prices between October 30, 2014 and August 3, 2015, reaching a high of $72.58 per share, and certain of the Company's insiders, including its CEO, were able to sell their Allstate shares at artificially inflated prices.

On March 30, 2017, an amended complaint was filed and on June 1, 2017, the defendants filed their motion to dismiss the case. On February 27, 2018, the judge denied the motion to dismiss the lawsuit.

Those who purchased Allstate Corp (NYSE:ALL) shares should contact the Shareholders Foundation, Inc.
