The filed complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that:

-- CBL was the target of a class action suit that could result in tens of millions or even hundreds of millions of dollars in liability; -- CBL, motivated by a desire to avoid bad publicity surrounding its dishonest nature and its dishonest conduct, completely ignored its disclosure obligations; and -- as a result, CBL’s public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.

On March 26, 2019, CBL publicly announced that they would set aside $90 million in order to settle a class action lawsuit alleging that it entered into tenant leases that stipulated it would charge for electricity at actual cost, and engaging in theft by marking up the electricity bills by large amounts and subsequently pocketing the difference.

Following this disclosure, CBL stock price declined more than 24%, from $1.82 per share on March 26, 2019 to a close of $1.37 per share on March 27, 2019.
