RADNOR, Pa., May 18, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The law firm of Kessler Topaz Meltzer & Check, LLP announces that a securities fraud class action lawsuit has been filed in the United States District Court for the Northern District of California against Skillz Inc. (NYSE: SKLZ) (“Skillz”) f/k/a Flying Eagle Acquisition Corp. (“FEAC”) on behalf of those who purchased or acquired Skillz securities between December 16, 2020 and April 19, 2021, inclusive (the “Class Period”). Investor Deadline Reminder: Investors who purchased or acquired Skillz securities during the Class Period may, no later than July 7, 2021, seek to be appointed as a lead plaintiff representative of the class. For additional information or to learn how to participate in this litigation please contact Kessler Topaz Meltzer & Check, LLP: James Maro, Esq. (484) 270-1453 or Adrienne Bell, Esq. (484) 270-1435; toll free at (844) 887-9500; via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org; or click https://www.ktmc.com/skillz-class-action-lawsuit?utm_source=PR&utm_medium=link&utm_campaign=skillz Skillz is an internet tech company that provides a proprietary gaming platform for mobile gaming users and developers. FEAC was formed as a special purpose acquisition company in early January 2020 by its sponsor Eagle Equity Partners II, LLC, led and controlled by defendant, Harry Sloan, a member of Skillz’s Board of Directors and former President and Chairman of FEAC. Within eight months, FEAC and Mr. Sloan had secured $158 million in private placement commitments in connection with a business combination between FEAC and its target – Skillz. After a definitive merger agreement and subscription agreements were executed, on September 8, 2020, FEAC, through its Board of Directors, filed a merger proxy statement and prospectus on a Registration Form S-4. The Class Period commences on December 16, 2020, when Skillz issued a press release, which was attached to Skillz’s Form 8-K filed on December 17, 2020, entitled “SKILLZ BECOMES FIRST PUBLICLY TRADED MOBILE ESPORTS PLATFORM.” Throughout the Class Period, Skillz touted its business prospects. However, on March 8, 2021, a research report by Wolfpack Research titled “SKLZ: It Takes Little Skill to see this SPACtacular Disaster Coming” was publicly released which described, among other things, how: (1) third-party app data shows installations of the three games responsible for 88% of Skillz’s revenues (21 Blitz, Solitaire Cube, and Blackout Bingo) all declined substantially; (2) Skillz did not disclose the substantial decrease in the popularity of these three games (despite their material importance to its growth trajectory); (3) Skillz is not taken seriously by gaming industry players; (4) Skillz has a long history of boasting about “big partnerships” which have amounted to nothing of value; and (5) Andrew Paradise, co-founder of Skillz and its Chief Executive Officer, does not have the relevant experience that had been expressed. Following this news, shares of Skillz fell by 10.9% to close at $24.45. This disclosure represented approximately $762 million loss of investor value. Then, on April 19, 2021, an anonymous Twitter account named Eagle Eye Research, released a short seller report. The report stated, “[Skillz] has never turned a profit and we doubt it ever will.” The Eagle Eye Report alleged that Skillz was “recognizing revenue from ‘virtual’ money it gave its customers to spend although no real cash is generated in the process.” Following this news, shares of Skillz fell by 6.61% to close at $12.55 on April 19, 2021, losing approximately $254 million in investor value. The complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, the defendants disseminated false and misleading statements and omissions that materially misrepresented Skillz’s purported financial condition and prospects. These materially misleading statements and omissions included representations relating to certain of Skillz’s business operations, performance metrics and ultimate valuation, including, among others, Skillz’s ability to attract new end-users, future profitability, the shrinking popularity of its hosted games that accounted for 88% of its revenue, and Skillz’s valuation. Skillz investors may, no later than July 7, 2021, seek to be appointed as a lead plaintiff representative of the class through Kessler Topaz Meltzer & Check, LLP or other counsel, or may choose to do nothing and remain an absent class member. A lead plaintiff is a representative party who acts on behalf of all class members in directing the litigation. In order to be appointed as a lead plaintiff, the Court must determine that the class member’s claim is typical of the claims of other class members, and that the class member will adequately represent the class. Your ability to share in any recovery is not affected by the decision of whether or not to serve as a lead plaintiff. Kessler Topaz Meltzer & Check, LLP prosecutes class actions in state and federal courts throughout the country involving securities fraud, breaches of fiduciary duties and other violations of state and federal law. Kessler Topaz Meltzer & Check, LLP is a driving force behind corporate governance reform, and has recovered billions of dollars on behalf of institutional and individual investors from the United States and around the world. The firm represents investors, consumers and whistleblowers (private citizens who report fraudulent practices against the government and share in the recovery of government dollars).

Maryland ranked highest; South Dakota ranked lowestWashington first state with civil right to counsel for tenants, key protection in pandemic eraOnly 1.12 civil legal aid lawyers per 10,000 poor, compared to 40 attorneys per 10,000 people NEW YORK, May 18, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The National Center for Access to Justice (NCAJ) at Fordham Law School today released findings in Justice Index 2021, a newly updated and expanded website that ranks the U.S. states on selected best policies for access to justice. On a 0-100 scale, the Justice Index ranks states in four civil justice policy areas: Attorney Access, Self Help, Language Access and Disability Access. Justice Index 2021 also includes – for the first time – a separate criminal justice ranking dedicated to curbing excessive reliance on fines and fees. For civil justice, Maryland is the highest state, at 64.68, while South Dakota is lowest, at 11.36. Maryland is followed by Massachusetts (2nd/63.71), Connecticut (3rd/62.52), California (4th/61.60) and Hawaii (5th/61.41). (Note: if all jurisdictions are included, D.C. is first at 64.80.)South Dakota ranked 52nd, at 11.36, preceded by Alabama (51st/18.98), Nevada (50th/20.44), New Hampshire (49th/21.45), and North Dakota (48th/22.76) (note: the civil justice listings include D.C. and Puerto Rico, making 52 jurisdictions in total).When criminal justice fines and fees are added into the mix, Massachusetts is highest, at 59.37, while South Dakota remains lowest, at 13.69 (note: the fines and fees listings include D.C., but not Puerto Rico).10,479 civil legal aid attorneys were counted nationwide. Noting the belief that every state should work towards ensuring at least 10 civil legal aid attorneys per 10,000 low-income people, there are only 1.12 civil legal aid lawyers per 10,000 people with incomes below 200% of the federal poverty level, compared to 40 attorneys per 10,000 people in the general population. “The Justice Index’s state rankings show greater fairness to be in every state’s reach,” said David Udell, NCAJ founder and executive director. “The Justice Index’s policy findings show where reform has already happened, where it needs to happen next, and how it can be brought about.” Created in 2014, updated in 2016 and now again in 2021, the Justice Index shows which states have better policies for justice, regardless of income, language spoken, or physical and mental challenges. By spotlighting the states with the selected policies, it supports policy reformers in the states that don’t have them. This is of particular importance in the pandemic era and as society strives to prioritize racial justice. “Access to justice means having a fair chance to be heard,” said Jamie Gamble, senior counsel & director, Justice Index project for NCAJ. “We look to our justice system to solve problems that cannot be solved elsewhere, including unfair evictions, divorce and custody disputes, and the protection of women and children from abuse and neglect. If it doesn’t work for everyone, it doesn’t work.” Examples defining the Access to Justice Movement since the debut of the Justice Index include creation of statewide Access to Justice commissions, prohibitions on charging litigants for costs of interpreters, enactment of Civil Right to Counsel laws, acceptance of statewide self-representation forms in the courts, adoption of new technologies for remote access to court, assurance of service animal access for people with disabilities, and reliance on certified sign-language interpreters. “While many of the selected policies are easily adopted and inexpensive to implement, the changes are anything but inconsequential for so many people whose lives depend on them, often without the benefit of legal counsel,” said Udell. “Court dockets are overwhelmingly populated by people who are navigating the system alone, and so much more can be done to ease that burden.” Justice Index 2021 tracks 163 civil justice best practices, allowing anyone to dig deep into any of the five discrete policy areas in each state. See below for explanations, and here for highlights in each category: Attorney Access: 26 policies for increasing access to a lawyer. Lawyers are expensive. The Justice Index includes a unique “count” of free civil legal aid organizations and civil legal aid attorneys. It also tracks civil right to counsel laws, and best policies for promoting private sector pro bono legal aid. https://ncaj.org/state-rankings/2020/attorney-access.Self Help: 56 policies for increasing access to justice for people who do not have representation by attorneys. Our legal system was created for lawyers, not people. https://www.ncaj.org/state-rankings/2020/self-representation.Language Access: 35 policies for increasing access to justice for people with limited English proficiency. Across the country, it is a challenge for people who don’t speak English to enforce their rights. https://ncaj.org/state-rankings/2020/language-access. Disability Access: 29 policies for increasing access to justice for people with disabilities. Across the country, people with emotional and physical difficulties face barriers when attempting to protect their rights. https://ncaj.org/state-rankings/2020/disability-access. Fines and Fees: 17 policies to curb abusive use of fines and fees. Across the country, state and local governments impose exorbitant fines defendants cannot afford. Later, they lock the same people up for “failing” to pay and impose user fees on top of the fines. https://ncaj.org/state-rankings/2020/fines-and-fees. For more information on Fines and Fees Justice Index findings, see our separate press release, here. About the National Center for Access to Justice at Fordham Law School and its SupportersNCAJ advances the principle that everyone should have a meaningful opportunity to be heard, secure their rights and obtain the law’s protection. We use research, data and analysis to expose how the justice system fails to live up to that ideal. NCAJ thanks pro bono participants at the following institutions who assisted with the Justice Index research: Deloitte, Pfizer, Fordham Law School, DLA Piper, Latham & Watkins, Kirkland & Ellis, Morgan Lewis, O’Melveny & Myers, Strook & Strook, Simpson Thacher. Without their efforts, the 2021 Justice Index would not have been possible. We are also grateful to the dozens of court officials around the country who assisted with the research, which was conducted amid the extraordinary demands of 2020. The project was made possible by charitable support received from Arnold Ventures and from the Bernard F. & Alva B. Gimbel Foundation.

(Bloomberg) -- Oil clung to losses as investors weighed developments in ongoing talks between world powers to revive the Iran nuclear deal.Futures in London fell as much as 3.1% on Tuesday after a Russian envoy in Vienna said significant progress has been made in efforts to broker an agreement between Iran and the U.S, the BBC Persian news channel reported However, the same diplomat, Mikhail Ulyanov, subsequently took to Twitter to play down reports that a major announcement on the matter was likely on Wednesday.“I said that significant progress have been achieved, in my view,” Ulyanov said in the tweet. “That is true. But unresolved issues still remain and the negotiators need more time and efforts to finalise an agreement on restoration of JCPOA.”A return to the 2015 nuclear deal could allow for the removal of U.S. sanctions on the Persian Gulf country’s crude exports, raising the prospects of more supply coming back to the market. Iran has already been preparing to ramp up global oil sales, though the flow of additional crude may be gradual even if a deal is struck.See also: Iran Gears Up for Return to Oil Market as U.S. Talks AdvancePrices were already weak earlier in the session after Brent futures failed to sustain a rally past the key psychological $70-a-barrel mark, which it hasn’t closed above since May 2019. Meanwhile, concerns are lingering around the worsening Covid-19 crisis in India. The South Asian country’s gasoline exports soared 85% in the first half of May from the same period last month, according to Vortexa.“We’ve had a pretty robust rally, but the question continues to be if we’re going to see some slowdown because of continued issues in India,” said Bart Melek, head of commodity strategy at TD Securities. “The market’s going to need something fundamental happen for prices to break out” to the upside “and at this point we’re not getting it.”Still, oil is joining other commodities in a blistering rally this year. Crude prices are up more than 30%, as raw materials emerge as a hedge against inflation. Much of Wall Street is calling for higher prices, with Goldman Sachs Group Inc. talking up the prospects of $80 a barrel oil. At the same time, the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries and its allies are boosting supply to meet rebounding demand.Meanwhile, shippers on the largest U.S. fuel pipeline say they can’t access the pipeline’s communications system, preventing them from making nominations or submitting changes to their batches of fuel. The Colonial Pipeline has been working to restart after a cyberattack more than a week ago caused a spate of panic-buying across a dozen states.In the U.S., oil inventories are expected to have risen last week, according to a Bloomberg survey. If confirmed by U.S. government data on Wednesday, that would be the first weekly increase in three weeks. The industry-funded American Petroleum Institute reports its storage tally later Tuesday.More stories like this are available on bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2021 Bloomberg L.P.
