NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - November 18, 2009) - Sarraf Gentile LLP announces that a class action lawsuit was filed against Carter's, Inc. (NYSE: CRI) and certain of its officers and directors on behalf of those who purchased Carter's common stock between April 27, 2004 and November 10, 2009 (the "Class Period"). The complaint alleges violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.
