Vanda Pharmaceuticals Inc. (NASDAQ: VNDA) Shareholder Lawsuit Update

Barr Law Group is investigating Vanda Pharmaceuticals Inc. regarding possible breaches of fiduciary duties and other violations of law, including securities claims on behalf of shareholders. On March 10, 2021, Judge Frederic Block of the United States District Court for the Eastern District of New York issued an order denying the company’s motion to dismiss in the pending securities class action, paving the way for litigation to proceed. According to the complaint against Vanda Pharmaceuticals for alleged violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, defendants misled investors about the company’s competitive advantage and hid that the company was engaged in a fraudulent scheme in which the company promoted the off-label use of two primary products that treat central nervous system disorders — Fanapt and Hetlioz.
