In order to submit a claim an investor has to submit the claim proof to the class action claim administrator in a timely manner. The deadline to submit the proof with the class administrator is June 28, 2015. The class action administrator for this case is Gilardi & Co LLC.

The lawsuit was originally filed in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California against Celera Corporation over alleged violations of Federal Securities Laws in connection with certain allegedly false and misleading statements made between April 24, 2008 and July 22, 2009. According to the complaint the plaintiff alleges that Celera Corporation and certain of its officers and directors violated the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 by issuing between April 24, 2008 and July 22, 2009 false and misleading statements regarding its business and financial results, repeatedly assuring investors that Celera Corporation would be able to increase the amount of its Lab Services business that was under contract, thus making its ability to collect on its receivables more predictable and less costly and time consuming. Defendants further assured investors that Celera Corporation was adequately reserving for its bad debts. As a result of defendants' false statements, Celera Corporation stock traded at artificially inflated prices throughout the Class Period, trading as high as $16.23 per share in September 2008.

Then on July 22, 2009, Celera Corporation announced that its "second quarter 2009 revenues relative to the prior year quarter [were] expected to show a reduction for Celera Corporation's Lab Services business." According to Celera Corporation, the Lab Services revenues were "adversely affected by lower than anticipated sample volume due to broad economic pressures, lost business as a result of the Company's efforts to collect aged receivables, and the denial of reimbursement on a number of legacy . . . tests by certain payors in some regions." In addition, Celera Corporation expected to record "significant charges in the second quarter of 2009 for bad debt expense and impairment of goodwill and intangible assets." On this news, so the complaint, Celera Corp's stock declined $1.91 per share to close at $5.83 per share on July 23, 2009, a one-day decline of nearly 25%. Shares of Celera Corporation (NASDAQ: CRA) traded recently $6.95 per share, down from its 52 week High of $8.38 per share, and $16.15 per share in 2008.
