Smith announces that a securities class action lawsuit has been filed on behalf of all persons or entities who purchased the common stock of Schweitzer-Mauduit International, Inc. (“Schweitzer-Mauduit” or the “Company”) (NYSE: SWM) between August 5, 2009 and February 10, 2010, inclusive (the “Class Period”). The class action lawsuit was filed in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Georgia.
