SAN DIEGO, Feb. 19, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Johnson Fistel, LLP is investigating potential claims on behalf of 3M Company ("3M") (NYSE: MMM) against certain of its officers and directors.
Specifically, a class action lawsuit was filed in federal court in 2019 against the Company on behalf of purchasers of the securities of 3M from February 9, 2017 and May 28, 2019 (the "Class Period"). According to the lawsuit, defendants throughout the Class Period made false and misleading statements and failed to disclose that: (1) 3M's vast internal evidence dating back decades confirmed that man-made chemicals or per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances ("PFAS") are toxic (which was first publicly revealed in February 2018 by Minnesota's Attorney General); (2) 3M had a long history of suppressing negative information and damaging data about PFAS; (3) 3M had significant legal exposure to state, county, and local governments and individuals around the country as a result of its knowledge and intentional concealment of the toxic harm caused by the use of PFAS; and (4) as a result, 3M's public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.
If you are a long-term shareholder of 3M continuously holding shares before February 9, 2017, you may have standing to hold 3M harmless from the alleged harm caused by the officers and directors of the Company by making them personally responsible. You may also be able to assist in reforming the Company's corporate governance to prevent future wrongdoing.
