The complaint alleges that throughout the class period FirstEnergy Corp. made materially false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) the legislative "solutions" that defendants claimed would resolve problems with the Company's nuclear facilities were centered on an illicit campaign to corrupt high-profile state legislators and thus secure legislation favoring the FirstEnergy; (2) over roughly three years, FirstEnergy and its affiliates funneled more than $60 million to prominent state politicians and lobbyists, including Ohio Speaker Larry Householder, in order to secure the passage of Ohio House Bill 6, which provided a $1.3 billion ratepayer-funded bailout to keep the Company's failing nuclear facilities in operation; (3) defendants falsely represented that they were complying with state and federal laws and regulations regarding regulatory matters throughout the Class Period, exposing the Company and its investors to the extreme risks of reputational, legal, and financial harm; (4) as a result of defendants' false statements and omissions, FirstEnergy insiders were able to sell more than $17 million worth of their FirstEnergy shares at artificially inflated prices.
