Gilman Law LLP, a prominent national securities law firm, is investigating allegations on behalf of Omnicare, Inc. shareholders that the Company withheld information from investors involving a widespread scheme to defraud the federal Medicare program and several state Medicaid programs. If you purchased the common stock of Omnicare, Inc. during the period between January 10, 2007 through August 5, 2010, and either lost money on the transaction or still hold the shares, you may be eligible to join an Omnicare class action lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Kentucky securities.stanford.edu/1047/OCR00_01/2011824_f02c_1100173.pdf ( Case No. 11-CV-00173). However, you must contact Gilman Law LLP as soon as possible in order to exercise your legal rights against Omnicare.
The Omnicare shareholder class action lawsuit was filed in the wake of the Company’s August 5, 2010 announcement that John Stone, the former vice president of audit at Omnicare, had filed a whistleblower lawsuit in federal court in Chicago charging that the Company engaged in a broad range of Medicare and Medicaid fraud over several years in numerous states. The revelation of the whistleblower lawsuit came only days after the Company abruptly announced the resignation of Omnicare President and CEO, Joel Gemunder on July 31.
News of Stone’s allegations caused Omnicare shares to plummet 10.81% to $22.53 per share, causing a loss of $328 million in market capitalization.
The Omnicare shareholder class action lawsuit alleges that the Defendants repeatedly and falsely represented that the Company was operating in compliance with all applicable laws and regulations while the fraud alleged by Stone was taking place, exposing Omnicare to significant liability. The suit further alleges that Defendants included proceeds from the Medicare and Medicaid fraud in reports of net sales and accounts receivable during the class period, thus causing share prices to be artificially inflated.
