A jury on Tuesday convicted former Minneapolis policeman Derek Chauvin of murder in the arrest of George Floyd, a milestone in the fraught racial history of the United States and a rebuke of law enforcement's treatment of Black Americans. George Floyd's family and community deserved for his killer to be held accountable. The world watched on May 25, 2020 as George Floyd died with a knee on his neck for nearly nine minutes.
NEW YORK, April 20, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Gainey McKenna & Egleston announces that a class action lawsuit has been filed against Acadia Pharmaceuticals Inc. (“Acadia” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: ACAD) in the United States District Court for the Southern District of California on behalf of those who purchased or acquired the securities of Acadia between June 15, 2020 and April 4, 2021, inclusive (the “Class Period”). The lawsuit seeks to recover damages for investors under the federal securities laws. The Complaint alleges that Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) the materials submitted in support of the pimavanserin sNDA contained statistical and design deficiencies; (2) accordingly, the pimavanserin sNDA lacked the evidentiary support that the Company had led investors to believe it possessed; (3) the FDA was unlikely to approve the pimavanserin sNDA in its present form; and (4) as a result, the Company’s public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times. On March 8, 2021, Acadia issued a press release providing a regulatory update on the pimavanserin sNDA, disclosing “that the Company received a notification from the [FDA] on March 3, 2021, stating that, as part of its ongoing review of the Company’s [sNDA], the FDA has identified deficiencies that preclude discussion of labeling and post-marketing requirements/commitments at this time.” Acadia advised that “[t]he notification does not specify the deficiencies identified by the FDA and there has been no clarification by the FDA at this time.” On this news, Acadia’s stock price fell $20.76 per share, or 45.35%, to close at $25.02 per share on March 9, 2021. Then, on April 5, 2021, Acadia issued a press release announcing that the Company had received a Complete Response Letter (“CRL”) from the FDA indicating that the pimavanserin sNDA could not be approved in its current form. Specifically, the press release stated that “the [FDA Division of Psychiatry], in the CRL, cited a lack of statistical significance in some of the subgroups of dementia, and insufficient numbers of patients with certain less common dementia subtypes as lack of substantial evidence of effectiveness to support approval.” On this news, Acadia’s stock price fell $4.41 per share, or 17.23%, to close at $21.18 per share on April 5, 2021. Investors who purchased or otherwise acquired shares of Acadia during the Class Period should contact the Firm prior to the June 18, 2021 lead plaintiff motion deadline. A lead plaintiff is a representative party acting on behalf of other class members in directing the litigation.

Photo Illustration by The Daily Beast / Photo via GettyOn Monday, billionaire hedge-fund manager Leon Cooperman—who has spent months parading his criticisms of progressive tax reforms in the media—got an invite to complain before Congress from one of his least favorite politicians, Sen. Elizabeth Warren.Warren (D-MA) gave Cooperman until Thursday to say whether he will appear as a witness at a Senate Finance subcommittee hearing dedicated to the topic on which they clash: income inequality. But the investor, who heard about the invitation while he was on vacation in the Florida Keys, told the Daily Beast that he will likely decline the offer.“I am probably not going to accept the invitation and I’ll tell you why: because she’s a bad person,” Cooperman said Tuesday afternoon, reached on his phone after a fishing expedition. “I’ll be in her den. I’ll be a cat in a lion’s den.”CNBC’s Favorite Billionaires and Elizabeth Warren Are Feuding. Both Sides Love It.The invitation was the latest in a series of gestures from Congressional progressives to shame billionaires into public interrogation over the structural forces that enabled their wealth. Just last month, Sen. Bernie Sanders (D) invited Jeff Bezos to a Senate Budget Committee meeting on income inequality, on the eve of the vote that could have created Amazon’s first union. Ultimately, Bezos declined Sanders’ invitation through a company spokesman.Warren’s invitation suggested Cooperman could outline his objections to her proposed Ultra-Millionaire Tax Act, which would establish a 2 percent tax on households valued over $50 million, and an additional 1 percent surtax on those worth more than $1 billion. All told, it would impact only the top 100,000 Americans, or 0.05 percent of the country—a group that counts Cooperman, who is worth an estimated $2.5 billion, as a member.“This hearing is an opportunity to share your views on how to strengthen the nation’s tax system,” Warren wrote, “to address economic inequality, raise revenues to fund critical pro-growth investments in families and communities, and bolster our long-term fiscal and economic outlooks.”When Warren introduced the proposal in March, alongside Rep. Pramila Jayapal and Rep. Brendan Boyle, Cooperman scoffed at the plan. He told CNBC it “has no merit. It’s foolish. It probably is not legal.” Tax avoidance was so widespread, he argued, that if a wealth tax were imposed, rich people would simply hide their cash.Warren hat-tipped to those comments, but she framed the hearing as an opportunity to air his complaints. “While this policy is backed by scores of experts and economists and is overwhelmingly popular with Democrats, Republicans, and independents,” she wrote, “I am aware that it is not particularly popular with you.”But Cooperman told the Daily Beast he still resents Warren for a feud they had back in 2019. When Warren was running for the Democratic presidential nomination, the campaign fired off a tweet at Cooperman, calling for him to “pitch in a bit more.”Billionaire Couple Pledges to Give Away 5% a Year—and Gets Dunked OnIn response, the banker wrote a five-page single-spaced letter outlining his biography, his charitable donations, some business success stories of many billionaire friends, and a few of his own arguments about economics. In his call with The Daily Beast, Cooperman described his own letter, which likened Warren to “a parent chiding an ungrateful child,” as “outstanding.”“Larry Summers—who was president of Harvard University and a very distinguished economist in his own right, and very liberal in his views, said if I submitted that paper in his class he’d give me an A-plus,” Cooperman said on the call. “Not an A, an A-plus.”Back in 2019, Warren tweeted about the letter, but Cooperman griped that he never got a private response. “That was a fabulous letter. I spent six hours writing that letter,” Cooperman said. “She didn’t respond to it. Why should I assume she would respond any different [now?]?...if she wanted to have a serious dialogue, she would have responded to that letter.”Read more at The Daily Beast.Get our top stories in your inbox every day.

The lawsuit seeks to recover damages for investors under the federal securities laws.

DETROIT — Two Italian managers in Fiat Chrysler's diesel engine program have been indicted by a federal grand jury in Detroit in a widening case alleging a scheme to cheat on U.S. emissions tests. The indictments unsealed Tuesday detail allegations of a plot to dupe the Environmental Protection Agency by rigging more than 100,000 diesel Ram pickup trucks and Jeep SUVs to cheat on EPA tests and exceed pollution limits on real roads. Sergio Pasini, 43, of Ferrera, Italy, and Gianluca Sabbioni, 55, of Sala Bolognese, Italy, each face nine charges including violating the Clean Air Act, wire fraud, and conspiracy to defraud the U.S. The U.S. Attorney's Office in Detroit said neither man is in custody and would not comment when asked if they will be extradited to the U.S. Both were described by authorities as senior diesel managers with the company. They join Emanuele Palma, 42, of Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, as defendants in the case. He was charged in 2019 but now faces a new 10-count indictment alleging conspiracy, Clean Air Act violations, and that he made false statements to the FBI and the EPA. In a statement, the Justice Department said the three men had “co-conspirators” in the scheme, indicating that more charges are possible. All three are accused of purposely calibrating emissions control software on 3-litre diesel engines so they met nitrogen oxide emissions requirements during EPA test cycles, yet emitted higher pollution while on the road. They referred to the manipulation as “cycle beating,” the statement said. Messages were left Tuesday seeking comment from Palma’s attorneys. It wasn’t clear if Pasini or Sabbioni have lawyers. In a statement, Fiat Chrysler, now Stellantis after merging with France's PSA Peugeot, said it's co-operating in the investigation and referred to previous statements denying that it took part in a deliberate scheme to program the engines to cheat on tests. Palma, Pasini and Sabbioni also are accused of causing others “to make false and misleading representations to FCA's regulators about the emissions control functions of the subject vehicles in order to ensure that FCA obtained regulatory approval to sell the subject vehicles in the United States," the Justice Department statement said. The cheating helped FCA attain best-in-class fuel economy, making the vehicles more attractive to buyers, prosecutors alleged. In 2019, Fiat Chrysler agreed to pay hundreds of millions of dollars, including a $300 million fine to the U.S. government, to settle emissions cheating allegations. Under the deal with the Justice Department and the EPA, the automaker must recall and repair the more than 104,000 out-of-compliance SUVs and pickups. The vehicles were made from 2014 through 2016. Separately, Fiat Chrysler agreed to pay $280 million to settle lawsuits brought by vehicle owners — leading to payouts of about $2,800 per owner — and will pay $19 million to California to settle similar state regulatory allegations. Fiat Chrysler has maintained that it didn’t deliberately scheme to cheat emissions tests, and the company didn’t admit wrongdoing. Tom Krisher, The Associated Press
Boston Police internal investigators found sufficient evidence in 1996 to support allegations that an officer sexually assaulted a minor, yet the officer remained on the force and was eventually returned to full duty, according to documents released Tuesday. The internal affairs file was ordered released by acting Mayor Kim Janey after The Boston Globe reported earlier this month that Patrick Rose, a retired officer and the one-time president of the Boston Patrolmen's Association, had been able to keep his badge despite a criminal complaint in 1995 for sexual assault on a 12-year-old child. The criminal complaint was eventually dropped, but the department's Internal Affairs Division concluded there was enough evidence to support the allegations, according to the documents. Then-Boston Police Commissioner Paul F. Evans was notified in a June 1996 memo of the results of the probe. Rose had been relieved of his weapon and placed on administrative duty, but was returned to full duty after an attorney for the Boston Police Patrolmen's Association wrote to the commissioner in October 1997 and threatened to file a grievance, according to the documents. Janey called it “deeply unsettling and entirely unacceptable” that Rose remained on the force for two decades and eventually became head of the police union. “What’s more, Rose was allowed to have contact with young victims of sexual assault during the course of his career, and we now know that he allegedly went on to assault several other children,” she said in an emailed statement. “His alleged behaviour is disgusting, and the apparent lack of leadership shown by the department at the time is extremely troubling. This culture of secrecy cannot be tolerated.” Rose now faces 33 charges involving six alleged victims. He has pleaded not guilty and his lawyer says he maintains his innocence. “My client maintains his innocence to all of the charges that have been brought against him and he maintains his innocence to what was alleged to have transpired back in 1995,” attorney William J. Keefe told the Globe earlier this month. The Associated Press left a phone message for him on Tuesday. A message seeking comment was left with the Boston Police Patrolmen's Association. An email was sent to a Boston Police spokesperson. City Councilor Andrea Campbell, a candidate for mayor, said the records show “the Boston Police Department and the Boston Police Patrolmen’s Association looked the other way and covered up sustained allegations that officer Patrick Rose had sexually assaulted a child.” “Given the magnitude of this case, there needs to be an immediate outside, independent review of this case and the cover up,” she added.

Nervous crowds awaiting a verdict in the trial of Derek Chauvin erupted in jubilation on Tuesday after the jury found the former Minneapolis police officer guilty of murder and manslaughter in the death of George Floyd during an arrest last May. Throngs gathered in George Floyd square, around the intersection where Floyd, a 46-year-old Black man, died with his neck pinned to the street under Chauvin's knee, screamed, cheered and applauded at the news of the guilty verdict. The square has become a place of pilgrimage and protest since Floyd's death made him the face of a national movement against racial injustice and police brutality.
Chauvin showed no emotion as he was convicted on all three murder charges
The MLA for Charlottetown-Victoria Park is calling on the government to review UPEI's policy on sexual violence, after an incident of voyeurism on campus. Karla Bernard raised the issue during Tuesday's sitting of the P.E.I. Legislature. The incident happened in February 2020 in a bathroom in the Robertson Library on campus. A 19-year-old male student was found guilty of trying to record the woman, also a student, on his phone while she was in the all-gender bathroom. In March, Abin Tom was found guilty of attempted voyeurism, given a conditional discharge, and ordered to stay away from the Robertson Library. The woman told CBC News she dropped out of her program because she was so traumatized by the incident. Her identity is protected by a court order. The victim's identity is protected by the court, but she told CBC News her story. (Laura Meader/CBC) Bernard said the government is a primary funder of post-secondary institutions, and the minister of education has the ability to ask for a review of the university's sexual violence policy. "Sexual violence policies are supposed to protect students, not fail them," Bernard said. "The minister of education has the ability to direct the review of a sexual violence policy," she said. 'Failure by UPEI' Bernard referred to the Post-Secondary Institution Sexual Violence Policies Act. She said it requires institutions to "appropriately accommodate the needs of students enrolled at the post-secondary institution who were affected by sexual violence." "Last week, CBC reported on a former UPEI student who was so traumatized by an incident of sexual violence that she has had to change institutions and alter her career path," Bernard said, "which on its face suggests a failure by UPEI to provide adequate accommodation." The incident of voyeurism happened in a washroom at UPEI's Robertson Library.(Laura Meader/CBC) Bernard also asked what funding and resources that the government is providing to post-secondary institutions to assist them in combating and responding to sexual violence. Premier responds "That's a very good and important question," said Premier Dennis King, replying on behalf of the minister of education. He said the government has numerous agreements in place with Holland College, Collège de l'Île and the University of Prince Edward Island. "I will have to take that question under advisement, to get an answer back to the member," King told the house. "I would have to go through the particulars (of the agreements) to get the answer that I think that the honourable member is deserving of." A UPEI spokesperson says the university can't share what actions it is taking or may take, for privacy reasons. It said it does have a sexual violence prevention policy and a student code of conduct.(Brian Higgins/CBC) A UPEI spokesperson told CBC News last week that the university can't share what actions it is taking or may take, for privacy reasons. It said it does have a sexual violence prevention policy and a student code of conduct and that "the issue is currently going through a process in accordance with these policies." Sanctions in the university's policies range from a verbal warning, to suspension or expulsion. More from CBC P.E.I.
