On July 17, 2023, during market hours, The Wall Street Journal published an article entitled "Environmental Groups Ask EPA to Shield Public From Abandoned Lead Cables", which followed up on a series of exposés showing that "Verizon and other telecom companies have left behind more than 2,000 toxic lead cables on poles, under waterways and in the soil across the U.S.", leaving various spots with lead levels which exceeded Environmental Protection Agency ("EPA") safety guidelines. The article also discussed how various environmental groups had requested that the EPA investigate the matter and remove certain lead-covered cables, and take other action as needed.

The plaintiff claims that between February 4, 2020 and July 26, 2023, the defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose, among other things, that Verizon owns cables around the country that are highly toxic due to being wrapped in lead, and which harm Company employees and non-employees alike, that it faces potentially significant litigation risk, regulatory risk, and reputational harm as a result of its ownership of these lead cables and the health risks stemming from their presence around the United States, that it was warned about the damages and risks presented by these cables but did not disclose that they posed a threat to employee safety, to everyday people, and communities around the country; and (4) as a result, Defendants' statements about its business, operations, and prospects were materially false and misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis at all relevant times.
