(NYSE: CBL), and certain of its officers. Shareholders who lost money on their investments are encouraged to contact Block & Leviton LLP to learn more.
On March 26, 2019, CBL & Associates announced that the company would set aside $90 million in order to settle a class action lawsuit alleging that it entered into leases providing that it would charge its tenants for electricity at cost, and engaging in theft by marking up the electricity bills by large amounts and pocketing the difference.

The shareholder lawsuit alleges that CBL & Associates misled shareholders as to its monetary exposure from the class action lawsuit it settled for $90 million.
