In re Yahoo! Inc. Securities Litigation
Yahoo Securities Litigation
Case No. 5:17-cv-00373

Welcome to the In re Yahoo! Securities Litigation Website


If you purchased Yahoo! Inc. securities between April 30, 2013 and December 14, 2016, you could get a payment from a class action settlement.


Summary of the Action

This Action involves violations of the federal securities laws against the Defendants. Specifically, Plaintiffs assert claims under Sections 10(b) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Exchange Act”).

As alleged in the Second Amended Complaint (the “Complaint”), Yahoo formerly provided internet services including, among other things, a web portal, search engine, Yahoo! Mail, Yahoo! News, Yahoo! Finance, sports, advertising, and a microblogging and social networking website, Tumblr.

Plaintiffs allege that, during the Settlement Class Period, the Defendants unlawfully inflated Yahoo’s stock price by making materially false or misleading statements and/or failing to disclose material facts concerning Yahoo’s user data security and data breaches. Plaintiffs further contend that the price of Yahoo securities was artificially inflated as a result of Defendants’ actions and that investors suffered injury as a result of the alleged inflation.

Defendants deny all of these allegations, deny that they made any false or misleading statements, and deny that they engaged in any wrongdoing.
