At the beginning of last year, computer graphics chip manufacturer Nvidia was sued over claims that it had defrauded investors as it prepared to get into the digital currency mining business. A sudden shift in the prices of assets and a decline in the attention being directed to recreational miners forced Nvidia to lower its expectations on graphics processing units (GPU), but not before investors had turned over millions of dollars to the company. As a result, law firms banded together to go after the company, but they will now have to figure out a different approach. A judge has decided that the lawsuit doesn\u2019t stand up to legal scrutiny. U.S. District Judge Haywood S. Gilliam was tapped to preside over the case and has determined that the law firms didn\u2019t provide enough evidence to support their claims that Nvidia had conducted fraud in connection to its foray into the digital asset mining business. He explained that the plaintiffs didn\u2019t properly demonstrate how the company had lied about its GPU inventory and that the allegations weren\u2019t supported by Nvidia\u2019s financial filings. In submitting the lawsuit, one of the law firms asserted at the time, \u201cs cryptocurrency prices began to plummet, NVIDIA masked slowing growth by continuing to push mid-range GPUs into the channel, which caused inventory levels to skyrocket and ultimately left NVIDIA with over three months of excess inventory in its channel.\u201d Gilliam also took issue with how the lawsuit attempted to use certain financial data to support the claims, despite no irrefutable connection. He stated, \u201cPlaintiffs allege that the market had been pointedly concerned about the risk of whether crypto-mining was truly behind the surge in NVIDIA\u2019s gaming revenues, or only accounted for \u2018some residual amount or some small amount,\u2019 as stated by Defendants.\u201d Nvidia, last December, tried to get the lawsuit thrown out, arguing that the plaintiffs were selectively pulling out information from company-provided data in order to try to build their case. It would now appear that the attempt was based on solid legal ground, as this is essentially the same conclusion reached by Gilliam. Just because the lawsuit has reached its conclusion, this doesn\u2019t mean that Nvidia\u2019s troubles are over. Gilliam put the ball back in the law firms\u2019 court and will allow them to amend the suit if they can produce any conclusive evidence to substantiate their claims.
