Former United States Securities and Exchange Commission attorney Willie Briscoe, founder of The Briscoe Law Firm, PLLC, and the securities litigation firm of Powers Taylor LLP announce that a federal class action lawsuit has been filed in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of New York against Roadrunner Transportation Systems, Inc. ("Roadrunner") (NYSE: RRTS) and several officers and directors for acts taken during the period of July 30, 2015 and October 26, 2015 (the "Class Period").

According to the complaint, the defendants are alleged to have violated certain provisions of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. Specifically, the complaint alleges, among other things, that defendants failed to disclose during the Class Period that the avian flu epidemic would have an adverse impact on its financial condition. Then, on October 26, 2015, Roadrunner disclosed that poultry, beef and produce freight were lower than expected due to the Midwest and West Coast droughts and the bird flu epidemic. Roadrunner stock dropped significantly immediately following this announcement.
