Lortiz v. Exide Technologies, et al., Case No. 2:13-cv-02607-SVW-E (C.D. Cal.)

A securities class action against corporate officers for alleged misrepresentations that concealed the company’s environmental abuses and worsening financial condition. The case was highly technical, involving several scientific and financial experts, more than 3 million pages of document production, 26 depositions, and numerous dispositive motions. The case settled just weeks before trial for a recovery that secured 35.6% of investors’ losses, despite the company being in bankruptcy.
