Rosen Law Firm Files Securities Class Action Lawsuit against Starz

Rosen Law Firm announced that it has filed a class action lawsuit on behalf of purchasers of Starz securities from August 1, 2014 through October 29, 2015, all dates inclusive. The lawsuit seeks to recover damages Starz investors under the federal securities laws. According to the lawsuit, throughout the Class Period defendants issued materially false and misleading statements to investors and/or failed to disclose that: Starz lacked adequate internal controls; according to a former Starz senior executive, Starz's contract with Comcast Corporation was a result of illicit business practices; and as a result, Starz's public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times. When the true details entered the market, the lawsuit claims that investors suffered damages.

Former Executive Sues Starz over Termination

Starz is facing a lawsuit from a former executive accusing the company of firing him in retaliation for complaining about the company's alleged unethical actions. In the lawsuit filed in Los Angeles Superior Court, Keno Thomas reportedly claimed that he was dismissed as a senior vice president of sales and affiliate marketing after he refused to inflate revenue and subscriber figures and complained about the illegal influence of Liberty Media Corp. on Starz's deals. Thomas, who also named Starz CEO Chris Albrecht and Liberty Media as defendants in the case, added that he was dismissed after a three-week medical leave.
