According to the Complaint, the Company made false and misleading statements to the market. YRC Worldwide overcharged the federal government for freight carrier services on a systemic basis from 2005 to 2013. The Company's misconduct resulted in the DoD being overcharged by millions of dollars for freight loads that were lighter and therefore cheaper than what the Company charged the government for. YRC Worldwide's business practices opened it up to government liabilities, including potentially owing treble damages under the False Claims Act. Based on these facts, the Company's public statements were false and materially misleading throughout the class period. When the market learned the truth about YRC Worldwide, investors suffered damages.

Join the case to recover your losses.
