City of Roseville Employees’ Retirement System v. CSC (Securities Class Action)

Computer Sciences Corporation investors filed a class-action lawsuit alleging that the company, its CEO, Michael Laphen, and its CFO, Michael Mancuso, violated the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 by issuing false and misleading statements about its financial condition between August 11, 2010 and May 25, 2011. The plaintiffs claimed that as a result of the false statements, CSC stock traded at artificially inflated prices which fell sharply after corrected financial data was published, causing investors to suffer economic losses. In May 2013, the parties settled the lawsuit for $97.5 million. See related Computer Sciences Corporation instance, “Accounting Errors Regarding U.K. Contracts”.
