Hynes Keller & Hernandez, LLC is investigating potential claims against the Board of Directors of SCANA Corporation (“SCANA” or the “Company”) (NYSE: SCG) concerning possible breaches of fiduciary duty arising from allegations that certain officers and directors of SCANA made materially false and/or misleading statements, as well as failed to disclose material adverse facts about the Company’s business, operations, and prospects. Specifically, SCANA is alleged to have issued materially false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose material information concerning the progress, cost and completion schedule of the multi-billion dollar nuclear construction project at V.C.
