BENSALEM, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec 3, 2018--Law Offices of Howard G. Smith announces that a class action lawsuit has been filed on behalf of investors that purchased Marriott International, Inc. (“Marriott” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ:  MAR ) securities between November 9, 2016 and November 29, 2018, inclusive (the “Class Period”).
