lululemon athletica inc Lawsuit Over Sheer Yoga Pants Gets Lead Plaintiff-Reuters
Tuesday, 1 Oct 2013 02:46pm EDT 

Reuters reported that A Louisiana pension fund will lead U.S. litigation accusing Lululemon Athletica Inc of fraudulently hiding defects that caused yoga pants to become nearly sheer, and concealing talks that led to the surprise departure of its Chief Executive. U.S. District Judge Katherine Forrest in Manhattan on October 01, 2013 said the Louisiana Sheriffs' Pension & Relief Fund, which owned about $1.3 million of Lululemon stock, will handle the litigation on behalf of shareholders. But trouble surfaced in March when the Vancouver, British Columbia-based company recalled its top-selling item, women's black yoga pants containing its Luon fabric, after determining the pants were too sheer. Less than three months later, Lululemon on June 10 announced the departure of Chief Executive Christine Day. Two lawsuits filed in Manhattan blamed the defective pants on cost-cutting, and accused Lululemon, Day and Chairman Dennis Chip Wilson of hiding the defects, using deep discounting to boost market share, and concealing plans to replace Day. Forrest combined the lawsuits and said the Louisiana fund should lead the case because it had a larger financial stake than the other plaintiff, Houssam Alkhoury of Natick, Massachusetts, and was a sophisticated institutional investor with experience leading similar lawsuits. The fund's law firm is Bernstein Litowitz Berger & Grossmann.  Full Article
