Gainey McKenna & Egleston Announces A Class Action Lawsuit Has Been Filed Against Geron Corporation (GERN)

NEW YORK, Jan. 24, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Gainey McKenna & Egleston announces that a class action lawsuit has been filed against Geron Corporation (“Geron” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: GERN) in the United States District Court for the Northern District of California on behalf of those who purchased or acquired the securities of Geron between March 19, 2018 and September 26, 2018, inclusive (the “Class Period”). The lawsuit seeks to recover damages for Geron investors under the federal securities laws.

When the true details entered the market, the lawsuit claims that investors suffered damages.

Investors who purchased or otherwise acquired shares of Portola during the Class Period should contact the Firm prior to the March 23, 2020 lead plaintiff motion deadline.
