Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP is Investigating J.C. Penny Company, Inc. (JCP) on Behalf of its Shareholders

Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a leading national securities law firm, is investigating potential misconduct at J.C. Penny Company, Inc. (“J.C. Penny” or the “Company”) (NYSE:JCP).

The investigation focuses on whether the Company’s Board of Directors and its officers committed mismanagement and breached their fiduciary duties.  On December 7, 2016, the Los Angeles City Attorney’s Office filed a lawsuit against J.C. Penny Corporation, Inc. (“JCP Corp.”), the Company’s principal operating subsidiary, alleging that JCP Corp. “has engaged in false reference pricing as a frequent business practice, thereby misleading consumers.”   The complaint further alleged that JCP Corp. “continues to engage in such deceptive (and illegal) acts, despite representing to a federal district court (in November 2015) that it would no longer do so.”
