A complaint has been filed in the United District Court of Nevada on behalf of all persons who purchased Galectin securities between January 6, 2014 and July 28, 2014, inclusive (the "Class Period").

The complaint alleges that the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws with respect to its disclosures concerning its business, operations, and prospects.

Specifically, the action alleges that during the Class Period, defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) Galectin paid stock promoters to distribute positive but false reports about the Company's prospects; (2) GR-MD-02 failed to provide the benefits proposed by Defendants when discussing the patent; and (3) as a result of the above, the Company's financial statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.

On July 28, 2014, Bleecker Street Research published an article disclosing that Galectin has connections with multiple stock promoters, insiders sold stock in the midst of a campaign to promote.

Also on July 28, 2014, Adam Feuerstein published an article reporting that Galectin paid Emerging Growth Corp. to disseminate misleading promotional campaigns about its stock.

Following this news, the price of Galectin stock declined by $0.78, or over 5%, to close at $14.54 on July 28, 2014.

On July 29, 2014, Galectin published the results of GR-MD-02 phase 1 clinical trial on its website, suggesting that it showed little difference from a placebo.

On July 29, Adam Feuerstein published an article stating that the Company deemed the phase 1 trial to be a success because there were no adverse side effects, despite knowing that ineffective placebos do not raise safety concerns.

On this news, the price of Galectin stock declined by $8.84, or over 61%, to close at $5.70 on July 29, 2014.

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
All clouds are not equal.
