The Miller Law Firm has been appointed co-lead counsel in a national securities class action alleging that Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, N.V. (FCA) misled investors by improperly inflating its sales numbers. The action is captioned Samaras v. Fiat Chrysler Automobiles N.V., et al., No. 2:16-cv-12803-LVP-SDD and is pending in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan. The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period the Defendants made false and misleading statements and failed to disclose material adverse facts about the Company’s business and operations to investors, in part by purposely inflating FCA’s vehicle sales numbers and falsely promoting the Company’s apparent streak of U.S. monthly vehicle sales growth (on a year-over-year basis).
