NEW YORK, Oct. 14, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Stull, Stull & Brody filed a lawsuit on June 7, 2017, in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York, Case No. 1:17-cv-04251, on behalf of participants in the 401(k) defined contribution plan of Chicago Bridge & Iron Company N.V. ("CBI" or the "Company") (NYSE: CBI). Defendants in the lawsuit have challenged the legal standing of the named plaintiff and his ability to maintain the action on a representative basis on behalf of plan participants. The Court has set a deadline of October 19, 2017, by which to file an amended complaint to add plaintiffs to the case. The lawsuit alleges that fiduciaries of CBI's 401(k) plan violated the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 ("ERISA") by offering CBI stock as an investment option under the plan when it was not prudent to do so and by failing to disclose the Company's true financial and operating condition to participants and beneficiaries of the plan. If you held CBI stock in an individual account under a Company 401(k) plan during 2013 and 2014 and you have questions about your legal rights or interests with respect to these matters, please contact Jason D'Agnenica, Esq. at Stull, Stull & Brody by e-mail at CBI@ssbny.com, by calling 212-687-7230 x145, by fax to 1-212-490-2022, or by writing to Stull, Stull & Brody, 6 East 45th Street, New York, NY 10017. You can also visit our website at www.ssbny.com. The action focuses on whether, since October 29, 2013, the defendants failed to protect the CBI 401(k) Plan from artificial inflation in CBI's common stock resulting from hundreds of millions of dollars in liability, and improperly accounted for CBI's goodwill during 2013 to cover losses associated with delays and overruns on the Nuclear Projects.
