The U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Indiana dismissed plaintiff’s securities fraud action against a nationwide health care benefits provider, and its officers and directors, in which plaintiff alleged that defendants artificially inflated the price of the stock by making certain false and misleading statements.

Specifically, plaintiff alleged that the defendant health care provider was experiencing system integration and claims processing problems, a growing claims backlog, lack of visibility into claims data, an inability to establish adequate reserves, and problems in adequately pricing products, prior to and during the class period, and that, as a result, certain statements defendants made during this time were false and misleading.
