The Klein Law Firm announces that a class action complaint has been filed on behalf of shareholders of NantHealth, Inc. (NASDAQ: NH) who purchased shares (1) pursuant and/or traceable to the Company’s initial public offering on or about June 1, 2016; and/or (2) between June 1, 2016 and March 6, 2017. The action, which was filed in the United States District Court for the Central District of California, alleges that the Company violated federal securities laws.
