Filing Date: March 29, 2018
According to the law firm press release, Overstock is an online retailer and purported advancer of blockchain technology. On December 18, 2017, Overstock announced that its Medici Ventures (“Medici”) business and tZERO trading system was engaging in a $250 million coin offering.
The complaint alleges that Defendants violated provisions of the Exchange Act by issuing false and misleading statements to investors, including in filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”). Specifically, Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) Overstock’s coin offering was highly problematic and potentially illegal; and (2) the Company’s Medici business was hemorrhaging money.
On June 20, 2018, the Court issued an Order consolidating cases and appointing Lead Plaintiff and Counsel.

About the Company & Securities Data
"Company" information provides the industry and sector classification and headquarters state for the primary company-defendant in the litigation. In general, "Securities" information provides the ticker symbol, market, and market status for the underlying securities at issue in the litigation.
In most cases, the primary company-defendant actually issued the securities that are the subject of the litigation, and the securities information and company information relate to the same entity. In a small subset of cases, however, the primary company-defendant is not the issuer (for example, cases against third party brokers/dealers), and the securities information and company information do not relate to the same entity.
