| By:

In case you missed it, the class action lawsuit filed in August 2015 by small retail investor Carl Stitt against OnDeck, its officers and underwriting banks for violating securities laws, was dismissed in late September of this year. Stitt withdrew his suit without prejudice as to all parties, including another investor, Isaac Malafsky, whose own class action suit was eventually consolidated into Stitt’s.

The case never gained any traction. Once the two suits were consolidated, OnDeck filed a motion to dismiss on multiple grounds, while pointing out that part of the complaint’s argument for a supposedly undisclosed negative trend came from a blog post on SeekingAlpha whose author had a short position in OnDeck’s stock. deBanked reported this on August 7th, 2015, when it was determined that the author was not just any short seller, but a company owned by Hunter Adams, who notoriously served time in prison for his role in a previous stock manipulation scheme.

Once the judge asked the parties to present oral arguments on the motion, the plaintiffs withdrew instead.

OnDeck traded at $10.47 on the day Stitt’s case was filed last year. It closed at $4.30 on December 9th, 2016, down by more than 50% since then.
