Court: United States District Court for the Northern District of California

Berger Montague served as co-counsel and obtained an $8.9 million settlement for the class of investors in this securities fraud class action. The case was litigated in the United States District Court for the Northern District of California and captioned In re Nuvelo, Inc. Securities Litigation, No. C 07-4056 VRW (N.D. Cal.).

The plaintiffs alleged that Nuvelo, Inc. misled investors by repeatedly trumpeting prior clinical success in the ongoing clinical trials of its lead drug candidate, alfimeprase, to treat blocked leg arteries and blocked catheters. The lawsuit also alleged that the defendants failed to disclose that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration imposed an extraordinarily stringent standard for statistical significance on the clinical trial of alfimeprase for blocked catheters.
