On or around 02/13/2020 (Court's order of dismissal)
Filing Date: April 12, 2019
According to the Complaint, Zogenix is a pharmaceutical company that develops and commercializes therapies for the treatment of transformative central nervous system disorders in the United States. Its lead product candidate is ZX008, which is also known commercially by its trademarked name “FINTEPLA.” FINTEPLA is a low-dose fenfluramine that is in Phase III clinical trials for the treatment of seizures associated with Dravet syndrome.
The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made materially false and misleading statements regarding the Company’s business, operational and compliance policies. Specifically, the Complaint alleges Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (i) Zogenix’s NDA for FINTEPLA contained inadequate non-clinical data and an incorrect version of a clinical dataset; (ii) consequently, Zogenix’s NDA for FINTEPLA was unlikely to gain FDA approval; and (iii) as a result, the Company’s public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.
On July 19, 2019, the Court issued an Order appointing Lead Plaintiff and Counsel. Lead Plaintiff filed an amended Complaint on September 10. Defendants filed a Motion to Dismiss the amended Complaint on October 4. On January 27, 2020, the Court issued an Order dismissing the amended Complaint with leave to amend. On February 13, Lead Plaintiff voluntarily dismissed this case.

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.
