Laidlaw Sued

 

 

Relmada Therapeutics is filing a lawsuit against Laidlaw and Company, its former investment banker. Relmada is also suing the two principals of the firm, James Ahern and Matthew Eitner, accusing them of misusing the company shares and confidential information to instigate a hostile bid for the enterprise. The lawsuit’s agenda is to enjoin Laidlaw’s intentions of continuing to propagate false and misleading information including soliciting proxies from the company’s stockholders through false pretenses. The aim of the lawsuit is to correct the already issued misinformation.

 

 

Restraining Order

 

 

In addition to the claims of breaching the contract and using false information acquired from Relmada during its service as the company’s investment banker, Relmada is in a quest for monetary damages rooting from costs incurred from issuing a response to the false and misleading information released in December 2015. According to Relmada, the Court of Nevada had dictated a temporary restraining order linked to the injunction of Laidlaw and its two principals. The Board of Relmada believes that Laidlaw should compensate the firm for damages caused by Laidlaw. The demand is to prevent Laidlaw from causing the same hard to other companies in future.
