In the complaint, the defendants are alleged to have violated certain provisions of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. Specifically, the complaint alleges, among other things, that defendants misrepresented and/or failed to disclose that the Company's Monrovia Facility lacked sufficient systems and facilities for the manufacture, packing, storage and installation of the Company's implantable lenses.
