    RALEIGH, N.C., June 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Eric and Jocelyn Hunter Thursday
 filed additional charges in the previously filed $3.3 billion harassment and
 securities lawsuit against Cree, Inc. (Nasdaq:   CREE), where Eric Hunter is an
 employee and former CEO.  As pointed out in a press release issued earlier
 Thursday from Eric Hunter, Cree's chairman, F. Neal Hunter, has made numerous
 false statements concerning Eric Hunter that constitute harassment and
 defamation, including false statements regarding Eric Hunter's diagnosis for
 and prescription or use of, anti-psychotic medications.
     "The false and malicious statements made by Cree's chairman, Neal Hunter,
 in a Raleigh News And Observer on Tuesday, June 24 are just examples of the
 harassment we receive continuously from Cree and why we had to sell our home
 in Chapel Hill," said Jocelyn Hunter.  "These actions have caused me, my
 husband, and our children irreparable harm."
     Additional information is contained in the June 26 press release issued at
 8:30 am.
