General Motors Company designs, builds, and sells cars, trucks, crossovers, and automobile parts. The Company offers vehicle protection, parts, accessories, maintenance, satellite radio, and automotive financing. General Motors provides its vehicles and services worldwide.

Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made materially false and misleading statements regarding the Company’s business, operational and compliance policies. Specifically, Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that:  (i) the Company installed at least three distinct defeat devices in over 700,000 trucks with Duramax diesel engines from 2011 to 2016 in order to cheat emissions tests in the U.S.; (ii) consequently, the GM trucks at issue emit up to five times the legal limit of nitrogen oxide pollutants; and (iii) as a result of the foregoing, GM’s public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times. 

On May 25, 2017, Bloomberg reported that a consumer lawsuit had been filed against GM for installing multiple defeat devices in two models of heavy-duty trucks with the Duramax diesel engine from 2011-2016.  The lawsuit alleges that GM’s unlawful, unfair, deceptive, and otherwise defective emission controls affect model year 2011-2016 GM Sierra 2500HD and 3500 HD trucks and GM Silverado 2500 HD and 3500 HD trucks.  According to the lawsuit, extensive testing of a 2013 Silverado 2500 diesel—a vehicle representative of the class of Duramax diesel engines present in both the Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra model years 2011 to 2016—indicated as follows: (1) the vehicle produces emissions above the certification tests at temperatures above the certification range (86ºF); (2) the vehicle produces higher emissions when temperatures are below the certification test range (68ºF); and (3) the vehicle produces higher emissions occur after the vehicle has been run for 200-500 seconds of steady speed operation on average by a factor of 4.5 in all temperature windows. These test results confirmed the presence of three distinct defeat devices, which enable the vehicle to meet emissions standards in the test temperature range, while allowing two to five times the legal amount of nitrogen-oxide pollutants to be emitted at all other times.

On this news, GM’s share price fell $0.60, or 1.81%, to close at $32.60 on May 25, 2017.

Report Reveals the Need for Improvements to the VA Suicide Hotline

Tampa, FL (Law Firm Newswire) July 21, 2017 – According to the Inspector General for the Department of Veterans’ Affairs, the suicide hotline for veterans requires some improvements.

A report issued by the department this year stated that several veterans who phoned the hotline were connected to overflow call centers, and some were put in a queue for a maximum of 30 minutes while they waited for someone to answer their call.

In 2007, the Veterans Crisis Line was created. It answers approximately 500,000 calls annually. The objective was to have no more than 10 percent of calls sent to overflow call centers. However, the rate was almost 30 percent last November. The high rollover rate is problematic because callers who were sent to two of the overflow call centers were placed in a queue where they could be waiting up to 30 minutes for someone to respond to their call. However, the staff did not deem this to be the same as being “on hold” because no one had answered the call. But, as the report indicates, there is no difference to the caller.

David W. Magann, a veterans’ disability lawyer, based in Tampa, Florida, states, “Individuals, such as veterans, who have suffered severe medical problems, should not be required to wait indefinitely for someone to answer their call on a suicide prevention hotline.” “They deserve to receive a timely response to their call for help,” Magann added.

Other problems that the audit revealed are inefficient leadership and insufficient data to evaluate the quality of calls. The rollover calls occur when phone lines are busy, thereby resulting in potential wait times of 30 minutes or more.

The new VA Secretary David Shulkin has made suicide prevention a major issue at the agency, which has been marked by scandal in recent years since there were reports of delays in treatment at veterans’ hospitals. As part his campaign, President Trump said he would work to improve the lives of veterans. This crisis presents him with an opportunity to remedy the troubling state of the veterans’ suicide prevention hotline.

Pomerantz Law Firm Announces the Filing of a Class Action against Chipotle Mexican Grill, Inc. and Certain Officers – CMG

NEW YORK, July 20, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Pomerantz LLP announces that a class action lawsuit has been filed against Chipotle Mexican Grill, Inc. (“Chipotle” or the “Company”) (NYSE:CMG) and certain of its officers.  The class action, filed in United States District Court, District of Colorado, and docketed under 17-cv-01760, is on behalf of a class consisting of investors who purchased or otherwise acquired Chipotle securities, seeking to recover compensable damages caused by defendants’ violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.

If you are a shareholder who purchased Chipotle securities between February 5, 2016, and July 19, 2017, both dates inclusive, you have until September 18, 2017, to ask the Court to appoint you as Lead Plaintiff for the class.  A copy of the Complaint can be obtained at www.pomerantzlaw.com.  To discuss this action, contact Robert S.

Chipotle Mexican Grill, Inc. owns and operates quick-serve Mexican restaurants. The Company operates restaurants throughout the United States. 

In 2015, numerous customers fell ill after eating at Chipotle restaurants, exposing the fact that Chipotle’s quality controls were not in compliance with applicable consumer and workplace safety regulations and were inadequate to safeguard consumer and employee health.

Facing a sharp drop-off in sales, Chipotle responded with widely publicized measures that the Company touted as improvements to its food safety protocols.  On February 8, 2016, the Company closed all of its restaurants for several hours for an all-staff meeting regarding food safety.  In addition, Chipotle hired a new head of food safety who implemented a number of changes to policies at the Company’s restaurants—for example, requiring all employees to wash their hands every half hour, mandating that two employees verified that certain ingredients had been immersed in hot water for at least five seconds to kill germs, and using Pascalization to pre-treat food ingredients.  By touting these measures, along with free food promotions and increased advertising, Chipotle aimed to restore customer confidence in the safety of its food.

The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made materially false and misleading statements regarding the Company’s business, operational and compliance policies. Specifically, Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that:  (i) Chipotle’s purported improvements in its restaurants’ food safety policies were inadequate; (ii) accordingly, Chipotle’s quality controls were still not in compliance with applicable consumer and workplace safety regulations; (iii) in turn, Chipotle’s quality controls remained inadequate to safeguard consumer and employee health; and (iv) as a result of the foregoing, Chipotle’s public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times. 

On July 18, 2017, media outlets reported that Chipotle had closed a restaurant in Sterling, Virginia due to a suspected norovirus outbreak.  According to Business Insider, citing information from iwaspoisoned.com, a website on which consumers document suspected incidents of foodborne illness, at least 13 customers fell ill after eating at the Chipotle restaurant in question between July 14 and July 15.  The Business Insider article further stated that customers who fell sick after eating at the restaurant reported “vomiting violently,” fevers, “violent stomach cramps,” and dizziness for several days.

On this news, Chipotle’s share price fell $17.02, or 4.34%, to close at $374.98 on July 18, 2017.

On July 20, 2017, The Wall Street Journal published an article entitled “Over 100 Report Being Sickened at Virginia Chipotle,” disclosing that the number of reports of illness associated with the restaurant-chain continues to rise. 

On that same day, Reuters published an article entitled “Chipotle Virginia customer tested positive for norovirus – official,” reporting that a county health department official has confirmed norovirus in a customer who ate at the Virginia Chipotle Mexican Grill Inc. restaurant.

Later in the day, CNBC published an article entitled “Rodents reportedly fall from ceiling of Dallas Chipotle,” reporting that rodents were spotted at a Dallas-area Chipotle on July 19, 2017.  According to the article, diners captured the incident inside the restaurant on video, which shows “rodents crawling around the floor and one climbing up the wall,” and with customers claiming the rodents were falling from the ceiling.

On these disclosures, Chipotle’s share price fell $16.78, or 4.5%, to close at $356.05 on July 20, 2017.

Law Firm Meissner Associates Announces FINRA Award of Nearly $1.7 Million Against Citizens Securities For Fraudulent Recruitment Practices

In a unique case involving blatant misrepresentations and false promises made by Citizens Securities, a subsidiary of Citizens Financial Group, to an investment advisor during the hiring process, who faced a $220,000 demand for return of promissory note funds because he left the bank just 4 months after starting, a FINRA panel awarded the Advisor nearly 1.7 million  in damages, interest and sanctions.

/EIN News/ — NEW YORK, July 19, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — In a milestone FINRA arbitration award released late last week from a Pittsburgh Pa. arbitration panel on behalf of a broker/investment advisor, New York based FINRA Attorney arbitration law firm Meissner Associates has secured a nearly $1.7 million arbitration award to a former employee of Citizens Securities, a subsidiary of Citizens Financial Group (NYSE:CFG).  The broker advisor, Frank Aiello, age 49 of Boalsburg Pennsylvania, claimed that Citizens misled him when they recruited him from PNC bank to work for Citizens Securities. The Claim alleged that Citizens made numerous misrepresentations to him, such as (1) false promises that he could continue to work in State College Pennsylvania where his client base was but instead assigning him to branches far from that location; and (2) false promises that he would be given a 30 million dollar book of business to add to his already growing book, when in fact he was given only one-third of what was promised.

Commenting on the award Managing Member Stuart D. Meissner, who is a former securities regulator and prosecutor in New York, stated, “I am pleased that the Panel heard the mountain of evidence we developed, some of which were Citizens’ own witnesses, to support Mr. Aiello’s allegations even though all the promises made to him were oral.”  Referring to the attempt to cover up their actions Meissner noted, “Citizens Securities went out of its way, both during the events and during the arbitration process, to try to cover up and obstruct the truth from coming out, but they failed miserably.”

Mr. Aiello commenting on the award stated, “I am very pleased that justice was done and that the FINRA panel saw through Citizens Securities attempt to mislead. I hope this award will give other employees who are misled during recruitment in the securities industry the incentive to fight for justice.”

It was alleged that after he started his employment Citizens Securities demanded that Mr. Aiello execute an acknowledgement form stating that no promises were made to him and that he was instructed to backdate the document to a date prior to his start date to make it appear that he had signed such acknowledgement while he was still with his prior employer PNC. During the hearing it was established that Mr. Aiello could not even have had the acknowledgement form on the date that it was indicated it was signed. The arbitration was also impacted by numerous sanction motions related to Citizens’ improper withholding and improper redacting of portions of critical emails and other documents which were uncovered due to subpoena, including internal emails between the headhunter and Citizens’ personnel referring to another recruit who was demanding similar promises be placed in writing in his offer letter, refusing to place such promises in writing stating, “that could create a disaster from a litigation stand point. Can you imagine Frank Aiello with this kind of written promise.”  At the conclusion of the hearing Aiello requested a range of compensatory damages between $902,000 and 4 million dollars. The 1.7 million dollar award, included retroactive 6% interest from his start date of August 3, 2015 on the 1.5 million dollars awarded totaling $168,410 in interest and $8,000 in sanctions. While the award was offset by the $220,000 provided to him by Citizens, along with $7,030 in interest on such note, that amount is dwarfed by the damages awarded to Mr. Aiello. Further, all forum fees totaling over $15,000 was assessed entirely against Citizens Securities.

Typically, cases involving forgivable promissory notes are very difficult to defend against, let alone achieve an award turning the tables on the brokerage firm and requiring it to pay substantial damages to the broker/advisor. It was alleged in the claim that Citizens Securities has a pattern and practice of making such false promises to prospective recruits and then failing to live up to such promises significantly impacting their careers. As a result of the award, the Meissner firm now expects, and has already received, numerous inquiries by current and former Citizens Securities broker/advisors who wish to bring similar multi-million dollar claims against the brokerage. 

Mr. Meissner is a former Manhattan prosecutor and member of the New York Attorney General’s office securities and financial crimes divisions.

Note:  New York based Meissner Associates is a nationally recognized whistleblower, securities, investment fraud and employment law firm representing SEC whistle-blowers, securities professionals in FINRA arbitration and enforcement proceedings as well as institutional and retail investors worldwide in recovering improper investment losses and protecting the employment rights of employees in the securities industry in FINRA arbitration and AAA Arbitration.

According to the Complaint, during the Class Period, Mattel made false and/or misleading statements, and/or failed to disclose adverse information, including that the Company’s retail customers had high levels of unsold Mattel products, exposing it to the heightened risk that it would have to issue its retailers financial concessions to remove the excess inventory, and that it would experience slower sales growth in future periods. Upon release of this news, Mattel’s share price fell materially, which caused investors harm according to the Complaint.

Lundin Law PC was founded by Brian Lundin, Esq., a securities litigator based in Los Angeles dedicated to upholding shareholders’ rights.
