ARIAD Pharmaceuticals Inc. (NASDAQ:ARIA): Current price $2.34
Johnson & Weaver LLP has brought a derivative lawsuit aimed at holding certain ARIAD officers and directors responsible for the damage they allegedly caused the firm to suffer. Specifically, the complaint says that these individuals breached their fiduciary duties and violated other laws connected with their representations about the safety and commercial viability of ARIAD’s leukemia drug Iclusig. As a result of this, ARIAD’s credibility and goodwill is said to have been damaged, along with the company’s market capitalization, and is now the subject of a securities fraud class action and will likely incur substantial costs in investigating and litigating that action.
