Burke, Harvey & Frankowski LLC ("BHF") announces the commencement of an investigation into Eaton Corporation ("Eaton" or the "Company") (NYSE: ETN) to determine whether it has violated securities laws by issuing false and misleading statements to its shareholders in light of the disclosures made about the Company's wrongful course of conduct undertaken during a high stakes trade secrets lawsuit in Mississippi state court.
In 2011, a Mississippi state court judge found that Eaton and its executives were aware of, and sanctioned, an illegal scheme to improperly influence the judicial process. On May 31, 2012, Eaton executives and attorneys submitted affidavits to a Mississippi state court admitting that damaging emails and documents related to this scheme had been improperly withheld from the other party to the lawsuit. In reaction to this news, shares of Eaton fell significantly on high trading volume. We are investigating whether the Company issued false and misleading statements to the investing public when news of the improper scheme first came to light.
