Former Attorney General of Louisiana, Charles C. Foti, Jr., Esq., a partner at the law firm of Kahn Swick & Foti, LLC ("KSF"), announces that KSF has commenced an investigation into CoreCivic, Inc. (NYSE: CXW).

CoreCivic, Inc. (formerly "Corrections Corporation of America") owns and operates private prisons and other correctional facilities and inmate transportation services across the United States. On August 18, 2016, it was announced by U.S. Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates that the Department of Justice was discontinuing the use of private prisons, including those operated by the Company, citing concerns relating to insufficient safety measures and ineffective remedial services. Thereafter, the Company and certain of its executives were sued in securities class action lawsuits for failing to disclose material information relating to the true quality, efficiency and regulatory compliance of its facilities as well as the status of its governmental contracts, violating federal securities laws. The Company's motion to dismiss the lawsuit was recently denied, allowing the consolidated case to proceed. Shareholder derivative lawsuits have also been filed against the Company's executives and are pending.

KSF's investigation focuses on whether CoreCivic's officers and/or directors breached their fiduciary duties to CoreCivic's shareholders or otherwise violated state or federal laws.
