IRVINE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Khang & Khang LLP (the “Firm”) announces a class action lawsuit has been filed against The GEO Group, Inc. (“GEO” or the “Company”) (NYSE: GEO).

There has been no class certification in this case. 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, the Company made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose: that GEO’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 GEO; and that as a result of the above, GEO’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 GEO fell in value, causing investors harm.
