H&R Block (HRB - Get Report) fell on news that New York Attorney General Eliot Spitzer filed a civil lawsuit against the tax preparer, alleging the company "steered hundreds of thousands of its clients, including almost 30,000 New Yorkers," into IRAs that were "virtually guaranteed to lose money." Spitzer's lawsuit contends the IRAs contained hidden fees and offered low returns.

Mark A. Ernst, H&R Block's chairman and CEO, said in a statement that the company believes in the Express IRA products. Ernst said that if the matter goes to court, the company "will fight vigorously to defend the Express IRA product and ensure it remains available to our many clients who rely on it as a helpful savings option." Shares fell $1.02, or 4.6%, to $20.98.
