The lawsuit has been filed in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York on behalf of all those who purchased Marriott securities between November 9, 2016 and November 29, 2018 (the “Class Period”). The case, McGrath v. Marriott International, Inc. et al, No. 1:18-cv-06845 was filed on December 1, 2018 and has been assigned to Judge Nina Gershon.
The lawsuit focuses on whether the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws by making false and/or misleading statements and/or failing to disclose that: (1) Marriott’s and Starwood’s systems storing their customers’ personal data were not secure; (2) there had been unauthorized access on Starwood’s network since 2014; (3) consequently, the personal data of approximately 500 million Starwood guests and sensitive personal information of approximately 327 million of those guests may have been exposed to unauthorized parties; and (4) as a result, Marriott’s public statements were materially false and/or misleading at all relevant times.
Specifically, on November 30, 2018, before market hours, Marriott reported a potential data breach involving the personal information of 500 million guests. According to the release, there had been unauthorized access to the Starwood network since 2014.
On this news, the Company’s stock price fell from $121.84 per share on November 29, 2018 to $115.03 per share on November 30, 2018—a $6.81 or 5.59% drop.
The court-appointed lead plaintiff is the investor with the largest financial interest in the relief sought by the class who is adequate and typical of class members who directs and oversees the litigation on behalf of the putative class. Any member of the putative class may move the Court to serve as lead plaintiff through counsel of their choice, or may choose to do nothing and remain an absent class member.
