NEW YORK, Aug. 14, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Gainey McKenna & Egleston announces that a class action lawsuit has been filed against Granite Construction, Incorporated (“Granite” or the “Company”) (NYSE: GVA) in the United States District Court for the Northern District of California on behalf of those who purchased or acquired the securities of Granite between October 26, 2018 through August 1, 2019, inclusive (the “Class Period”), seeking to recover damages caused by Defendants’ violations of the federal securities laws and to pursue remedies under Sections 10(b) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Exchange Act”) and Rule 10b-5 promulgated thereunder.

When the true details entered the market, the lawsuit claims that investors suffered damages.
