Lawsuits will be dismissed as every short well knows. They have to prove that anything said on PR articles was untrue or misleading and no one has been able to point out just what was said that was untrue. No law that keeps a company from hiring a PR firm to make your company or product look good and better known. And no law that keeps management from selling shares they have legally earned through options once those options have vested. Day traders are in and out, shorts are going to try and push the price down further, but if you are long and panicked you have no one to blame but yourself. BUY when everyone else is selling, if you have done your DD.
You are correct, no law allows ANY CEO,DIRECTORS PAID PR to PUMP THEN DUMP also. I was not a day trader and loss a lot on this FRAUD CEO. IT'S YOUR MONEY, MOVE ON, DON'T ASSUME, GUESS, HOPES SOME DAY ( maybe 5 years from now) stock will be back up to $7; HONESS AND FACTS that's all I ask.
