The lawsuit was originally filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Minnesota against St Jude Medical Inc over alleged securities laws violations in connection with certain allegedly false and misleading statements made between October 17, 2012 and November 20, 2012. According to the complaint the plaintiff alleges on behalf of purchasers of common stock of St Jude Medical Inc (NYSE:STJ) during the period from October 17, 2012 through and including November 20, 2012, that St Jude Medical Inc and its chief executive violated that Securities Exchange Act of 1934. More specifically, the plaintiff claims that St Jude Medical Inc issued a series of allegedly misleading statements concerning an inspection by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration ("FDA") of the company's Sylmar, CA production facility. The plaintiff alleges that St Jude Medical Inc released a heavily redacted version of the Form 483 that the company had received from the FDA and among other information concealed the names of any St Jude Medical Inc products. The plaintiff claims that defendants allegedly knew, but failed to disclose, that most of the observations of objectionable conditions listed on the Form 483 related to the Durata product. Then after the close of the market on November 20, 2012, so the plaintiff, media outlets reported on the FDA's release of its own version of the same Form 483 issued to the Sylmar, CA facility, which showed that most of the identified problems pertained to the Durata lead.
