Lawyers for Robinhood Markets Inc. said they had reached an agreement in principle to resolve litigation by some investors who were blocked from trading shares in high-flying stocks during an outage in March 2020.
No details were disclosed.
“Once final details are resolved, and within 60 days of this notice, the parties will file a motion for preliminary approval of the settlement,” the attorneys said in a federal court filing Thursday.
Multiple investors sued Robinhood in several states, mostly alleging restrictions by the trading platform that amounted to a breach of contract, court records show.
Cases in California were consolidated with a federal judge in San Francisco.
The outage was a blow to the Silicon Valley startup, which drew in young, often inexperienced investors with an easy-to-use trading app.
