The complaint alleges that the Company misstated and/or failed to disclose that it: (a) overstated the efficacy of its product EXPAREL; (b) improperly promoted EXPAREL as able to work for up to 72 hours despite it being only approved for 24-hour pain relief; (c) improperly claimed EXPAREL as safe and effective for use in cholecystectomy and colectomy, though its approved labeling does not provide for such use; and (d) derives a substantial portion of its revenues from off-label marketing.

On September 25, 2014, the Company revealed it had received a Warning Letter from the FDA regarding the marketing of EXPAREL. Shares of Pacira closed at $106.28 per share the day before the announcement, and recently closed at just $98.35 per share on October 6, 2014.
