Prothena Corporation (Case No. 3:18-cv-04261) in the USDC for the Northern District of California (“James Action”). As a result, potential class members should disregard Levi & Korsinsky’s August 6, 2018 notice that announced the pendency of the James Action and its corresponding deadline for requesting appointment as lead plaintiff.

Investors should note that the dismissal of the James Action does not affect the pendency of a similar securities class action entitled Granite Point Capital v.
