This lawsuit is for anyone who acquired securities in CareDx, Inc. (NASDAQ: CDNA) from February 24, 2021 through May 5, 2022.
The lawsuit alleges that the Company and certain of its executives violated federal law. Specifically, the lawsuit alleges that, throughout the time period mentioned above, the Company misled investors regarding its financial condition. More specifically, the lawsuit alleges that the Company misled investors by failing to inform investors that the Company was driving revenue by giving illegal kickbacks to doctors to use the Company's services.
On October 28, 2021, after the market closed, CareDx revealed that it had received a civil investigative demand from the U.S. Department of Justice as part of an investigation into the Company’s “business practices related to [its] kidney testing and phlebotomy services.” The Company had also received a subpoena from the SEC for similar issues as well as certain accounting and public reporting practices. On this news, the price of the Company's stock dropped precipitously on unusually heavy trading volume. Then, on April 15, 2022, the Company’s former Head of Community Nephrology filed a complaint that provided detail regarding CareDx’s misconduct, including the use of its home-based clood-drawing service, RemoTraC to improperly bundle the Company’s most expensive testing services with other blood tests, that led to the government investigations, as well as the Company’s knowledge of the misconduct and its attempts to conceal it. On this news, the price of the Company's stock again dropped precipitously on unusually heavy trading volume. Finally, on May 5, 2022, after the market closed, the Company released its financial results for the first quarter of 2022, reporting that testing service revenue fell short of analysts’ expectations with an average price decline of 4.9%. On this news, the price of the Company's stock again dropped precipitously on unusually heavy trading volume.
