Under Armour Shareholders File Lawsuit

August 9, 2015

Shareholders of the American sports apparel and accessories company, Under Armour Inc. are bringing a lawsuit against the company ahead of a stock split the company announced earlier this summer, as reported in Washington Business Journal.

Under Armour is planning to open in Georgetown at 3150 M Street at the corner of Wisconsin and M, the site formerly occupied by Serendipity 3 DC, and Nathan's.
