About the Lawsuit
Sterling and certain of its executives are charged with failing to disclose material information during the Class Period, violating federal securities laws.
Following previous disclosures by the Company regarding misconduct by its employees in connection with its loan origination process, including its income verification and documentation practices, on March 17, 2020, Sterling disclosed that it would delay the filing of its Annual Report as more time was needed to complete additional review of the processes and write-offs relating to the suspension and termination of the Bank’s Advantage Loan program.
On this news, the price of Sterling’s shares plummeted.
The first-filed case is Oklahoma Police Pension and Retirement System v. Sterling Bancorp, Inc, et al., 2:20-cv-10490.
