About the Lawsuit

Sinclair and certain of its executives are charged with failing to disclose material information during the Class Period, violating federal securities laws. 

On July 19, 2018, the Federal Communications Commission released its Order pertaining to Sinclair's proposed merger with Tribune Media Company (which the Company called the "largest acquisition" in its history), ruling that there was "a substantial and material question of fact as to whether Sinclair affirmatively misrepresented or omitted material facts" regarding whether it had "attempted to skirt the Commission's broadcast ownership rules" through "proposed divestitures [that] were in fact ‘sham' transactions."

On this news, the price of Sinclair's shares plummeted.
