Amarin hit with suit after stock tumbles

Published November 08. 2013 4:00AM

Two weeks after Amarin Corp. plc saw its stock price take a tumble, a class action lawsuit has been filed against the company and its chief executive.

Steven Sklar of New York City is the lead litigant in the suit, filed by New York law firm Wolf Popper LLP. The suit charges the company, whose research headquarters are in Groton, and CEO Joseph S. Zakrzewski with misrepresenting prospects for Amarin's key drug Vascepa and failing to keep investors fully informed.

Amarin's share price has fallen about 70 percent since an FDA panel recommended against Vascepa's use in conjunction with cholesterol-fighting statins.

Cranberry sauce: Whether it's the home made stuff containing actual cranberries or the reddish jelly shaped like the can it plopped out of, it reminds me of childhood.
