The Law Offices of Frank R. Cruz Reminds Investors of Looming Deadline in the Class Action Lawsuit Against Cabot Oil & Gas Corporation (COG)

The Law Offices of Frank R. Cruz reminds investors of the upcoming October 13, 2020 deadline to file a lead plaintiff motion in the class action filed on behalf of investors who acquired Cabot Oil & Gas Corporation (“Cabot Oil” or “the Company”) (NYSE: COG) securities between October 23, 2015 and June 12, 2020, inclusive (the “Class Period”).

If you are a shareholder who suffered a loss, click here to participate.

On July 26, 2019, the Company disclosed that it had received two proposed Consent Order and Agreements related to two Notices of Violation it had received from the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection in 2017 for failure to prevent the migration of gas into fresh groundwater sources in the area surrounding Susquehanna County, Pennsylvania.

On this news, the Company’s share price fell $2.63, or over 12%, to close at $19.16 per share on July 26, 2019.

On June 15, 2020, following a grand jury investigation, the Pennsylvania attorney general’s office charged Cabot Oil with 15 criminal counts due to its failure to fix faulty gas wells, which polluted Pennsylvania’s water supplies through stray gas migration.

On this news, Cabot Oil’s stock price fell $0.67 per share, or 3.34%, to close at $19.40 per share on June 15, 2020.

The complaint filed in this class action alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made materially false and/or misleading statements, as well as failed to disclose material adverse facts about the Company’s business, operations, and prospects. Specifically, Defendants failed to disclose to investors: (1) that Cabot had inadequate environmental controls and procedures and/or failed to properly mitigate known issues related to those controls and procedures; (2) as a result, Cabot, among other issues, failed to fix faulty gas wells, thereby polluting Pennsylvania’s water supplies through stray gas migration; (3) that the foregoing was foreseeably likely to subject Cabot to increased governmental scrutiny and enforcement, as well as increased reputational and financial harm; (4) that Cabot continually downplayed its potential civil and/or criminal liabilities with respect to such environmental matters; and (5) as a result, the Company’s public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.

Florida extends voter registration deadline by one day

Florida is extending the voter registration deadline in this year’s 2020 general election following problems Monday night with the state’s online registration system.

Florida Secretary of State Laurel Lee announced midday Tuesday that the deadline would be extended to 7 p.m. Tuesday for registration online, in person or by mail.

The original deadline to register to vote had been midnight Monday. But as that deadline neared, users encountered slow responses and error messages on the state’s online voter registration site, RegisterToVoteFlorida.gov.

Lee said Tuesday that, during the last few hours, the site had been accessed by an “unprecedented” 1.1 million requests per hour.

She said the Florida Department of State is working with state and federal law enforcement to look at whether there were any “deliberate acts against the voting process” that caused or contributed to outages Monday night to the state’s voter registration website.

“We are working with local supervisors of elections and the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles to ensure that all eligible registrants have the ability [to] submit a voter registration application by 7 p.m. this evening,” Lee said in a statement.

In addition to registering online, voters can submit applications to their county supervisor of elections offices, through their local driver’s license offices or tax collector’s office or mail an application as long as it is postmarked by Tuesday, Oct. 6.

Gov. Ron DeSantis’ office has asked that all tax collectors’ offices extend their office hours until 7 p.m. in order to accept voter registration applications. The state will work with other offices about extending their hours Tuesday to assist people registering to vote.

Lee said anyone who already registered to vote online after the deadline would be included in being eligible to vote in the Nov. 3 general election.

Lee also asked anyone not trying to register to vote to stay off the online voter registration site.

Voting rights groups apply pressure

A number of voting rights groups had called for Florida’s voter registration cutoff to be extended multiple days after the problems Monday night with RegisterToVoteFlorida.gov.

On Tuesday, a coalition of voting rights groups, including the League of Women Voters of Florida, All Voting is Local Florida, ACLU Florida and the Florida NAACP, sent a letter to DeSantis and Lee demanding that the voter registration deadline be extended two days, until 11:59 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 7.

“Florida’s online voter registration system has unfortunately broken repeatedly at precisely the moment it is needed most — the high volume days just before the voter registration deadline, or in this case, just hours before the book closing deadline,” the groups wrote in the letter.

Brad Ashwell, Florida state director of voting rights group All Voting is Local, said that there would need to be time to get the word out about any deadline extension, and added that there was no guarantee at this point that the website wouldn’t crash again if the deadline were extended.

The coalition also asked in the letter that

The Law Offices of Frank R. Cruz Reminds Investors of Looming Deadline in the Class Action Lawsuit Against Airbus SE (EADSY, EADSF)

The Law Offices of Frank R. Cruz reminds investors of the upcoming upcoming October 5, 2020 deadline to file a lead plaintiff motion in the class action filed on behalf of investors who purchased Airbus SE (“Airbus” or the “Company”) (OTC: EADSY, EADSF) securities between February 24, 2016, and July 30, 2020, inclusive (the “Class Period”).

If you are a shareholder who suffered a loss, click here to participate.

On March 15, 2020, The Wall Street Journal reported that, according to internal documents related to the Company’s $4 billion bribery settlement, Airbus executives had previously raised red flags about fees paid to a number of middlemen working with its helicopter division, which was led at the time by the now-Chief Executive Officer, that may have violated global bribery and corruption rules.

On this news, Airbus ADRs fell $3.44 per share, or nearly 16%, to close at $18.46 per share on March 16, 2020, and Airbus foreign ordinaries fell $7.97 per share, or about 9%, to close at $77.75 per share on March 16, 2020.

Then, on July 30, 2020, The Wall Street Journal reported that the U.K. Serious Fraud Office had charged an Airbus subsidiary and three individuals with corruption in connection with a defense contract the U.K. had arranged with Saudi Arabia.

On this news, Airbus ADRs fell $0.67 per share, or about 3%, to close at $18.13 per share on July 31, 2020, and Airbus foreign ordinaries fell $2.85 per share, or about 4%, to close at $72.10 per share on July 31, 2020.

The complaint filed in this class action alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made materially false and/or misleading statements, as well as failed to disclose material adverse facts about the Company’s business, operations, and prospects. Specifically, Defendants failed to disclose to investors: (1) that Airbus’s policies and protocols were insufficient to ensure the Company’s compliance with relevant anti-corruption laws and regulations; (2) that, consequently, Airbus engaged in bribery, corruption, and fraud in order to enhance its business with respect to its commercial aircraft, helicopter, and defense deals; (3) that, as a result, Airbus’s earnings were derived in part from unlawful conduct and therefore unsustainable; (4) the full scope and severity of Airbus’s misconduct; (5) that resolution of government investigations of Airbus would foreseeably cost Airbus billions of dollars in settlements and legal fees and subject the Company to significant continuing government investigation and oversight; and (6) that, as a result, the Company’s public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.

Committee adjourns on eve of deadline to repeal bailout law | National politics

Rep. David Leland, the ranking Democrat on the House committee, has been pushing for action before the Thursday deadline for weeks.

“House Republicans are going to let October 1st go by without doing anything to stop this ratepayer rip-off,” Leland said in a statement this week. “That means, in the middle of a global pandemic and an unemployment crisis, House Republicans are going to make hardworking Ohioans pay more on their utility bills.”

Leland also criticized that proponent testimonies for the repeal bills are from the same entities that testified for the bill’s passage last year.

Newly elected House Speaker Bob Cupp, who created the committee last month, said he wants to untangle the legislation “expeditiously” but also with care, as to prepare for any ramifications of the repeal.

The only way for lawmakers to ensure their constituents do not see the additional fee on their electric bill in January is for an emergency clause on the repeal, which would require 66 members voting in favor of it. Currently, 58 out of 99 House members have signed on to cosponsor bills that would repeal the law.

While lawmakers from both sides of the aisle have agreed the law and the process to which it was passed was corrupt, they have not proposed any concrete legislation to replace it with.

Federal judge rejects Indiana absentee voting law, extending ballot deadline

A federal judge has rejected Indiana’s noon Election Day deadline to receive absentee ballots, allowing Hoosiers more time to mail in absentee ballots for the Nov. 3 presidential election.

The many ways you can vote in Indiana

The Tuesday evening ruling from U.S. Southern Indiana District Judge Sarah Evans Barker means absentee ballots postmarked on or before Nov. 3 and received on or before Nov. 13 will be counted.

Stacks of envelopes prepare to be stuffed with absentee ballots at the Marion County election board service center in Indianapolis on Wednesday, Sept. 23, 2020. Because seasonal election workers are processing thousands of applications, there is room for human error. Election board leaders encourage voters who qualify for an absentee ballot to send their applications early and bring ballot errors to the board’s attention as soon as possible.

Julia Vaughn, policy director at government watchdog Common Cause Indiana, said the ruling was “a huge win for Hoosier voters.”

“We’ve seen several rulings over the past couple of weeks from the federal courts, but I think the impact from this is probably going to be the biggest,” Vaughn said. 

Indiana Attorney General Curtis Hill’s office told IndyStar on Wednesday they were “reviewing and considering our options.” 

Common Cause Indiana, which filed the lawsuit, said that the Nov. 3 noon absentee deadline constituted “an undue burden on the fundamental right to vote” during the coronavirus pandemic, according to court documents. 

Barker in her decision rejected an argument that allowing an extra 10 days to receive ballots would undermine the election process.

Rather, she said ensuring all valid absentee ballots postmarked by Nov. 3 “should in fact help assuage” concerns over the legitimacy of the results.

“The burden imposed by Indiana’s noon Election Day receipt deadline, which threatens to disenfranchise thousands of eligible absentee voters for reasons that, because of the COVID-19 pandemic, are outside their control, is very substantial,” Barker wrote.

Barker also dismissed arguments that the extended deadline would lead to more absentee ballots cast, overwhelming election officials who must count them.

“We find that this additional administrative strain is not so compelling as to outweigh the burden faced by voters,” she wrote. 

“An order extending the noon Election Day receipt deadline for mail-in absentee ballots is straightforward and does not affect the procedure a voter must follow to properly submit an absentee mail-in ballot,” she said in the decision. “There is no impact on the voting process itself, nor any real risk of voter confusion or dissuasion from casting a ballot.”

A number of Indiana laws regarding voting procedures are under review by the federal court. 

In August, the court ruled that the state cannot purge voters with suspected address changes from election rolls until they notify voters and wait at least two election cycles before removing them if they don’t respond. Common Cause Indiana was also
