U.S. Magistrate Judge Nathanael M. Cousins sided with Hagens Berman in the pending class action against Theranos, upholding the complaint brought against Theranos, Elizabeth Holmes and Ramesh “Sunny” Balwan in an order filed Apr. 18, 2017 on behalf of both direct and indirect purchasers, and allowing the case to move forward.
“The court has allowed the case for Theranos investors to continue, and we are now entering a critical juncture in our fight for investors’ rights,” said Steve Berman, managing partner of Hagens Berman. “We’re urging indirect purchasers of Theranos securities to step forward and aid the scores of those affected.”
The complaint filed Nov. 28, 2016, in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California, states that Theranos and its officers set in motion a publicity campaign to raise billions of dollars for Theranos and themselves, and to induce investors to invest in Theranos, all the while knowing that its “revolutionary” blood test technology was not yet viable.
On Friday, Apr. 21, 2017, the Wall Street Journal reported on papers filed in one of the court proceedings against Theranos, detailing how even Theranos directors were deceived, including that Theranos set up a secret company to purchase the commercial equipment it used instead of its “revolutionary technology” to hide the purchases.
