According to the complaint the plaintiff alleges on behalf of purchasers of Centurylink Inc (NYSE:CTL) common shares between February 27, 2014 and June 15, 2017, that the defendants violated Federal Securities Laws. More specifically, the plaintiff claims that between February 27, 2014 and June 15, 2017, the Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that CenturyLink's policies allowed its employees to add services or lines to accounts without customer permission, resulting in millions of dollars in unauthorized charges to CenturyLink customers, that accordingly, the Company's revenues were the product of illicit conduct and unsustainable, that the foregoing illicit conduct was likely to subject CenturyLink to heightened regulatory scrutiny, and that as a result of the foregoing, CenturyLink's public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.
