The DocGo class action lawsuit alleges that defendants throughout the Class Period made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (i) DocGo’s executive hiring processes were inadequate to fully review and vet the professional and academic backgrounds of job candidates; (ii) this increased the likelihood of disruptive executive turnover; (iii) contrary to DocGo’s representations to investors, DocGo had overstated the efficacy of its mobile health and medical transportation services; and (iv) all of the above, once revealed, was likely to subject DocGo to significant reputational and/or regulatory scrutiny that would negatively impact DocGo’s financial position and/or prospects. The DocGo class action lawsuit further alleges that on July 30, 2023, The New York Times, published an article reporting that “[l]ocal authorities have expressed frustration at the lack of coordination between DocGo and agencies that could provide services to the migrants; local security guards hired by DocGo have repeatedly threatened the migrants; and finding steady work has been nearly impossible.” The DocGo class action lawsuit alleges that following the publication of The New York Times article, the price of DocGo stock fell more than 6%.
The DocGo class action lawsuit also alleges that on September 6, 2023, New York City Comptroller Brad Lander announced that his office was declining to approve the Relocation Contract.

The DocGo class action lawsuit alleges that on this news, the price of DocGo stock fell more than 7%.
The DocGo class action lawsuit further alleges that on September 14, 2023, the Albany Times Union published an article reporting that former DocGo CEO, defendant Anthony Capone, had falsified portions of his professional biography regarding his educational history. According to the complaint, on the following day, September 15, 2023, DocGo disclosed Capone’s resignation as CEO.
