MARIETTA, Ga., Jan. 28, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MiMedx Group, Inc. (Nasdaq: MDXG) (“MIMEDX” or the “Company”), a transformational placental biologics company, today announced that a federal court in Georgia has denied a motion to reconsider the dismissal of Carpenters Pension Fund of Illinois’ (“CPFI”) putative class action lawsuit claiming that the Company violated the federal securities laws.
