The Klein Law Firm Reminds Investors of Class Actions Filed on Behalf of Arconic Inc. Shareholders and a Lead Plaintiff Deadline of September 11, 2017 (ARNC, ARNC-P, ARNC-PB)

NEW YORK, Aug. 15, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The Klein Law Firm announces that class action complaints have been filed on behalf of shareholders of Arconic Inc. (NYSE:ARNC) (NYSE:ARNC-P) (NYSE:ARNC-PB) (1) who purchased shares between November 4, 2013 and June 26, 2017 and/or (2) who purchased Arconic Depositary Shares, each representing a 1/10th interest in a share of 5.375% Class B Mandatory Convertible Preferred Stock, Series 1, pursuant and/or traceable to the Registration Statement and Prospectus issued in connection with Arconic’s initial public offering on September 18, 2014. The action, which was filed in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York, alleges that the Company violated federal securities laws.

In particular, the complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, defendants made materially false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that (i) Arconic knowingly supplied its highly flammable Reynobond PE (polyethylene) cladding panels for use in construction; (ii) the foregoing conduct significantly increased the risk of property damage, injury and/or death in buildings constructed with Arconic’s Reynobond PE panels; and (iii) as a result of the foregoing, Arconic’s public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times. On June 26, 2017, Arconic issued a press release announcing it would discontinue global sales of Reynobond PE for use in high-rise buildings after the material was suspected to have contributed to the spread of the deadly fire at the Grenfell Tower apartment complex in London.

Shareholders have until September 11, 2017 to petition the court for lead plaintiff status. Your ability to share in any recovery does not require that you serve as lead plaintiff. You may choose to be an absent class member.

(“Forterra” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq:FRTA) of the October 13, 2017 deadline to seek the role of lead plaintiff in a federal securities class action that has been filed against the Company.

The lawsuit has been filed in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York on behalf of all those who purchased Forterra common stock issued in connection with the Company’s October 21, 2016 IPO.  The case, Forrester v. Forterra, Inc. et al, No. 2:17-cv-04763 was filed on August 14, 2017, and has been assigned to Judge Joan Marie Azrack.

The lawsuit focuses on whether the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws by providing inaccurate statements of material fact and/or failing to disclose that (1) organic sales in the Company’s Drainage and Water segments had declined significantly; (2) the Company faced increased pricing pressure in its Houston, Texas region; (3) the Company had been experiencing continued softness in its concrete and steel pipe business; (4) the Company faced significant operational problems at its production plants; (5) the Company had understated its expenses and overstated its profits at the time of the IPO; and (6) the Company had various other material weaknesses in its internal controls.

Top Members of Lucchese Crime Family Nabbed in New York Mob Crackdown

New York, NY(Law Firm Newswire) August 15, 2017 – In a sweeping organized crime bust, New York investigators arrested 19 people who are alleged leaders and members of the notorious Lucchese crime family.

The defendants were charged with a wide range of crimes including narcotics distribution, wire fraud, money laundering, murder, gambling and robbery. According to the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York, the charges were linked to a racketeering scheme that ran in New York between 2000 and May 2017. The NYPD and the FBI’s Organized Crime Task Force carried out the crackdown.

“Charges related to organized crime are very serious and carry the likelihood of severe penalties,” said Peter Brill, a New York criminal defense attorney with Brill Legal Group. “Because they involve multiple defendants, such cases tend to be complicated. As a result, it is necessary to have an aggressive defense team that is undeterred by the complexity of these types of charges.”

The Lucchese family is among five mafia organizations that have a long history of operating in New York. They are part of La Cosa Nostra, an organized criminal network that started in Italy.

One of the key defendants is Matthew Madonna, 81, an alleged street boss for the Lucchese family. He allegedly ran the crime organization while its leader was in prison. Also named in the indictment are suspected underboss Steven Crea Sr., 69, and alleged consigliere Joseph DiNapoli, 81.

Authorities said the trio of high-ranking leaders comprise the Lucchese family’s administration. The other defendants are Joseph Datello, 66, and Paul Cassano, 38, with the respective nicknames “Joey Glasses” and “Paulie Roast Beef.” Federal agents arrested 15 defendants in various areas around New York and New Jersey. The other four people were already in custody on other charges.

The indictment also described two alleged attempted assaults. The first incident involving a Bonanno family associate took place in 2012 and the second occurred in October 2016. The victim in the latter case experienced retaliation for sharing information with law enforcement. Five of the defendants were also allegedly involved in the November 2013 murder of notorious gangster Michael Meldish in the Bronx.
