The claims concern whether the McCormick & Schmick's Board of Directors is undertaking a fair process to obtain maximum value for its shareholders. In particular, the Company adopted a poison pill in April, thwarting a hostile takeover in which shareholders would have received $9.25 per share. Furthermore, shares of McCormick & Schmick's traded as high as $9.15 per share as recently as May of this year.
