The Boston Scientific Corporation class action lawsuit charges Boston Scientific and certain of its executives with violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and seeks to represent purchasers or acquirers of Boston Scientific securities between April 24, 2019 and November 16, 2020, inclusive (the “Class Period”).  The Boston Scientific class action lawsuit was commenced on December 4, 2020 in the Eastern District of New York and is captioned Jevons v. Boston Scientific Corporation, No. 20-cv-05894.

Boston Scientific develops, manufactures, and markets medical devices for use in various interventional medical specialties worldwide.  Boston Scientific’s products include, among others, the LOTUS Edge Aortic Valve System, which is a Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement product.  Boston Scientific announced U.S. Food and Drug Administration approval for the LOTUS Edge Aortic Valve System in April 2019.

The Boston Scientific class action lawsuit alleges that, throughout the Class Period, defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (i) the LOTUS Edge Aortic Valve System’s product delivery system was dysfunctional and threatened the continued viability of the entire product line; (ii) as a result, Boston Scientific had materially overstated the continued commercial viability and profitability of the LOTUS Edge Aortic Valve System; and (iii) as a result, Boston Scientific’s public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.

On November 17, 2020, Boston Scientific announced a global recall of all unused inventory of the LOTUS Edge Aortic Valve System, citing “complexities associated with the product delivery system.”  Boston Scientific further announced that, “[g]iven the additional time and investment required to develop and reintroduce an enhanced delivery system, the company has chosen to retire the entire LOTUS product platform immediately.” On this news, Boston Scientific’s stock price fell nearly 8%, damaging investors.

The Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 permits any investor who purchased Boston Scientific securities during the Class Period to seek appointment as lead plaintiff in the Boston Scientific class action lawsuit.  A lead plaintiff is generally the movant with the greatest financial interest in the relief sought by the putative class who is also typical and adequate of the putative class.  A lead plaintiff acts on behalf of all other class members in directing the Boston Scientific class action lawsuit.  The lead plaintiff can select a law firm of its choice to litigate the Boston Scientific class action lawsuit.  An investor’s ability to share in any potential future recovery of the Boston Scientific class action lawsuit is not dependent upon serving as lead plaintiff.  If you wish to serve as lead plaintiff of the Boston Scientific class action lawsuit or have questions concerning your rights regarding the Boston Scientific class action lawsuit, please provide your information here or contact counsel, J.C.
