About the Lawsuit
Navient and certain of its executives are charged with failing to disclose material information during the Class Period, violating federal securities laws.
On October 5, 2017, the Pennsylvania Attorney General announced a lawsuit against Navient for unfair and deceptive lending practices associated with the origination of subprime loans to high risk borrowers as well as guiding borrowers to payment postponement plans (thereby allowing loan interest to accumulate), rather than promoting income-based repayment plans.
On this news, the price of Navient's shares plummeted $2.10 per share, or over 14%, from its previous closing price to close at $12.60 per share.
