On-Point, Deloitte & Touche Named in Class Action Lawsuit
On May 22, 2000, the law firm Cauley & Geller LLP filed a Class Action Complaint in the U.S. District Court on behalf of Purchasers of On-Point Technology Systems Inc. stock between May 19, 1997 through February 22, 2000. The law firm has substantial experience with securities fraud class action lawsuits.
The complaint is aimed at On-Point’s president and chief executive officer, Frederick Sandvick, other employees of On-Point, and Deloitte & Touche LLP. The allegation is that these parties violated securities laws by employing improper accounting techniques to artificially inflate On-Point’s revenue and profits.
Financial results for 1997 and 1998 were incorrect and were recently restated in April 2000. Further allegations include that the financials were given unqualified audit reports by Deloitte & Touche.
Individuals looking to recover losses or to serve as a plaintiff in this lawsuit are encouraged to call the law firm by July 20, 2000.
Voice of the Editor
Which isn’t completely true. I mean, occasionally I drop by when I manage to sneak out of the nonstop frat party over at Going Concern, but I’m mostly a wallflower over there. I’m happy to say that I’ve been given express permission (or explicit orders, if you like) to wander over here to AccountingWEB more often.
Why is that, you might ask? My job is to replace the irreplaceable Gail Perry as Editor-in-Chief. What does that mean? I don’t really know! I think it’ll be fun getting a feel for things, throwing in my own thoughts here and there, and listening to the discussions you’re having about the accounting profession.
