A proposed class action filed on behalf of Cardinal Financial Corporation’s stockholders claims the company and its board of directors violated federal securities laws by issuing “materially incomplete and misleading disclosures” to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.

Absent this and other key disclosures, the lawsuit argues, shareholders would not be afforded the opportunity to make an informed vote in favor or against the transaction.
