The Gross Law Firm notifies investors that a class action has commenced in the United States District Court for the Western District of Washington on behalf of shareholders of Athira Pharma, Inc. who purchased between September 18, 2020 and June 17, 2021 and/or purchased common stock in or traceable to the Company’s registration statement issued in connection with the Company’s September 2020 initial public offering priced at $17.00 per share.
The filed complaint alleges that defendants made materially false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that:
(1) the research conducted by Defendant Kawas, which formed the foundation for Athira’s product candidates and intellectual property, was tainted by Kawas’ scientific misconduct, including the manipulation of key data through the altering of Western blot images; and (2) as a result of the foregoing, Defendants’ positive statements about the Company’s business, operations, and prospects were materially misleading and omitted material facts necessary in order to make the statements made not misleading.
