According to the complaint the plaintiff alleges on behalf of certain purchasers of New Oriental Education & Tech Grp (ADR) (NYSE:EDU) common shares that the defendants violated Federal Securities Laws. More specifically, the plaintiff claims that the Defendants allegedly made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that New Oriental engaged in college application fraud, and that as a result, Defendants’ statements about New Oriental’s business, operations and prospects were materially false and misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis at all relevant times.
