SAN DIEGO (Business Wire) -- Zeldes Haeggquist & Eck, LLP, a shareholder and consumer rights litigation firm, has commenced an investigation into JAKKS Pacific, Inc. (“JAKKS Pacific” or the “Company”) to determine whether the Company's Officers and Directors have breached their fiduciary duties owed to the Company and its shareholders.

JAKKS Pacific (NASDAQ: JAKK) develops, manufactures, and markets toys. On July 18, 2013, the Company announced weaker than expected financial results.

At the same time the Company announced a plan to suspend the Company's 7¢ per share quarterly cash dividend.

On this news, the price of JAKKS Pacific stock dropped from $11.48 on July 17, 2013 to close at $6.99 on July 18, 2013. We are investigating whether directors and officers of JAKKS Pacific violated federal securities laws or breached their fiduciary duties in connection with the above.
