SUMMARY OF CASE:

A securities class action has been filed against Cintas Corporation (CTAS) on behalf of purchasers of the securities of Cintas between March 6, 2017 through November 13, 2019.  This case has been filed in the USDC – D.N.J.

The lawsuit claims that when the truth was disclosed in the Spruce Point Capital Management investment research report, investors suffered damages.
