NEW YORK, Oct. 5, 2016 /CNW/ -- (NASDAQ: MDCA) – MDC Partners Inc. ("MDC Partners" or the "Company") announced today that the U.S. District Court presiding over North Collier Fire Control and Rescue District Firefighter Pension Plan, et al v. MDC Partners Inc., et al, No. 15 Civ. 6034 (S.D.N.Y.), granted the Company's motion to dismiss the plaintiffs' amended complaint in its entirety with prejudice, and directed the Clerk of the Court to "close the case."
