Shareholders who fit the class definition are encouraged to contact the firm regarding possible lead plaintiff appointment. Appointment as lead plaintiff is not required to partake in any recovery.


CLASS DEFINITION: This lawsuit is on behalf of a class consisting of all persons and entities who purchased, acquired, or otherwise held or sold, the publicly traded securities of The Southern Company between May 10, 2013 to February 20, 2020, inclusive.

ALLEGATIONS: The complaint alleges that Deloitte & Touche, LLP allegedly made false and/or materially misleading statements in connection with its audit of The Southern Company’s financial statements and, in particular, its “clean coal” electric power plant in Kemper, Mississippi.
