The lawsuit has been filed in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Tennessee on behalf of all those who purchased Brookdale securities between August 10, 2016 and April 29, 2020 (the “Class Period”). The case, Posey v. Brookdale Senior Living, Inc. et al., No. 3:20-cv-00543 was filed on June 25, 2020, and has been assigned to District Judge Aleta A. Trauger.
The lawsuit focuses on whether the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws by making false and/or misleading statements and/or failing to disclose that: (1) Brookdale’s financial performance was sustained by, among other things, the Company’s purposeful understaffing of its senior living communities; (2) the foregoing conduct subjected Brookdale to an increased risk of litigation and, once revealed, was foreseeably likely to have a material negative impact on the Company’s financial results and reputation; (3) as a result, the Company’s financial results were unsustainable; and (4) as a result, the Company’s public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.
On April 30, 2020, Nashville Business Journal reported that a proposed class action lawsuit had been filed against Brookdale, which accused the Company of, among other things, purposeful “chronically insufficient staffing” at its facilities in an effort to meet financial benchmarks since at least April 24, 2016. According to the lawsuit, Brookdale misled residents and their families when it promised to provide basic care and daily living services. The lawsuit also claims that the proposed class of plaintiffs “have not received the care and services they paid for.” The lawsuit asks for damages and for Brookdale to “stop the unlawful and fraudulent practices.”
On this news, the Company's stock price fell, over two trading sessions, from $3.68 per share on April 30, 2020 to $3.12 per share on May 1, 2020: a $0.56 or 15.22% drop.
