There has been no class certification in this case yet. Until certification occurs, you are not represented by an attorney. You may choose to take no action and remain a passive class member.
According to the complaint, during the Class Period, the Company made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose: that Corrections Corporation’s facilities lacked adequate safety and security standards and were less efficient at offering correctional services than the Federal Bureau of Prisons’ (“BOP”) facilities; that the Company’s rehabilitative services for inmates were less effective than the BOP’s services; that the U.S. Department of Justice (“DOJ”) was unlikely to renew and/or extend its contracts with Corrections Corporation; and that as a result of the above, Corrections Corporation’s public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times. On August 18, 2016, Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates announced that the DOJ decided to stop using private prisons, since they are less safe and less effective than federal government-run prisons. When this news was announced to the public, shares of Corrections Corporation dropped in value.
