About the Lawsuits
Nikola and certain of its executives are charged with failing to disclose material information during the Class Period, violating federal securities laws.
On September 10, 2020, Hindenburg Research published a report alleging that evidence showed the Company was "an intricate fraud built on dozens of lies." Subsequently, it was reported that the Company was the subject of probes by both the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission and the Justice Department. Then, on September 21, 2020, the Company announced the sudden resignation of Founder and Executive Chairman, Trevor Milton. Then, in several interviews on October 15-16, 2020, the Company’s CEO made statements indicating that the Company’s strategic manufacturing partnership with General Motors could fall through.
On this news, the price of Nikola’s shares plummeted.
The first-filed case is Borteanu v. Nikola Corporation et al., 20-cv-01797.
