More specifically, the plaintiff claims that CytRx Corporation, its CEO, and two stock promotion firms made misleading statements and failed to disclose that numerous articles touting CytRx Corporation stock issued by the stock promotion firms were paid stock promotions and when the market began to learn of the true facts through partial disclosures, the value of CytRx stock dropped damaging investors.
