Lawsuit Overview

Defendant:YRC Worldwide, Inc.
Date Filed:January 2nd, 2019
Industry:Trucking Freight/Courier Services

According to the Complaint, YRC Worldwide Inc. provides various transportation services primarily in North America. It operates as a holding company with two reporting segments: YRC Freight (longer haul trucking) and Regional Transportation (regional and next-day delivery markets).

The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) from 2005 to at least 2013, YRC Worldwide's units systematically overcharged the federal government for freight carrier services; (2) this alleged misconduct caused the Department of Defense to overpay by millions of dollars for shipments that were lighter, and thus cheaper, than the weights for which the government was charged; (3) consequently, this alleged misconduct would subject YRC Worldwide to enhanced government scrutiny and liabilities, including potentially owing treble damages under the False Claims Act; and (4) as a result, YRC Worldwide's public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.
