NEW YORK, June 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Harwood Feffer LLP (www.hfesq.com) is investigating potential claims against the board of directors of Stericycle, Inc. ("Stericycle" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: SRCL) concerning whether the board has breached its fiduciary duties to shareholders or violated the federal securities laws.
Stericycle is currently facing whistleblower allegations that it imposed excessive price increases and other charges on customers in breach of its contracts and in violation of various laws. A recently unsealed qui tam complaint was filed in 2008 on behalf of the United States, 14 states, and the District of Columbia in connection with the whistleblower's statements. Stericycle has also received civil investigative demands from Tennessee, Massachusetts, Virginia, and North Carolina related to the same misconduct.
Our investigation concerns whether the Company's officers and directors should be liable for the harm to Stericycle. If you own Stericycle shares and wish to discuss this matter with us, or have any questions concerning your rights and interests with regard to this matter, please contact:
