Align Technology Inc, San Jose, Calif, said this week that the United States District Court for the Northern District of California dismissed with prejudice the shareholder class action lawsuit filed in November 2012 by lead Plaintiff City of Dearborn Heights Police & Fire Retirement System against the company, President and CEO Thomas M. Prescott, and previous CFO Kenneth B. Arola.

The dismissal with prejudice follows the court’s previous dismissal of the plaintiff’s first amended complaint against Align Technology for failure to state a claim on December 9, 2013.
