According to the lawsuits, Robinhood engaged in illegal market manipulation by restricting trading of some or all of the Affected Securities. The manipulation depressed the value of the Affected Securities causing substantial losses to investors. On the other hand, the alleged manipulation bestowed significant benefits to those who had short positions on the Affected Securities, including hedge funds.
Pursuant to the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 (15 U.S.C. § 78u-4(a)(3)(A)(i)(II)), if you wish to serve as lead plaintiff, you must move the Court no later than July 27, 2021.
