Norfolk County Retirement System v. Ustian, et al. (Securities Fraud)

A securities fraud lawsuit was filed against Navistar, several of its current and former senior officers and its former outside auditing firm on behalf of investors who purchased Navistar International Corp. securities on the open market from February 14, 2003 through July 17, 2006. The complaint alleged the defendants knowingly and fraudulently misrepresented Navistar’s financial results during the class period, and when the true results were reported it caused a 30% drop in Navistar’s stock price. In November 2010, Navistar agreed to settle the lawsuit for $13 million. See related Navistar Defense instance, “Garza v. Belton, et al. (Securities Fraud).”
