NEW YORK, March 14, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Bragar Eagel & Squire, P.C. announces that a class action lawsuit has been filed in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California on behalf of all persons or entities who purchased or otherwise acquired Corcept Therapeutics Incorporated (NASDAQ: CORT) securities between August 2, 2017 and February 5, 2019 (the “Class Period”).

The complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period defendants made materially false and/or misleading statements, as well as failed to disclose material adverse facts about the company’s business, operations, and prospects. Specifically, the complaint alleges that defendants failed to disclose to investors: (1) that the company had improperly paid doctors to promote its drug Korlym; (2) that the company aggressively promoted Korlym for off-label uses; (3) that the company’s sole specialty pharmacy was a related party; (4) that the company artificially inflated its revenue and sales using illicit sales practices through a related party; (5) that such practices are reasonably likely to lead to regulatory scrutiny; and (6) that, as a result of the foregoing, defendants’ positive statements about the company’s business, operations, and prospects were materially misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis.
