About the Lawsuit
ACADIA and certain of its executives are charged with failing to disclose material information during the Class Period, violating federal securities laws.
On July 9, 2018, a report published by the Southern Investigative Reporting Foundation highlighted problems associated with the Company's sole drug, Nuplazid, a treatment for Parkinson's disease, as well as the Company's growth strategies that "have attracted intense regulatory scrutiny for other drug companies" including "dispensing wads of cash to doctors to incentivize prescription writing and downplaying mounting reports of patient deaths."
On this news, the price of ACADIA's shares plummeted $1.21/share, or 6.8%, to close at $16.63/share on July 9, 2018.
