WAYNE, Pa., March 11, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Ryan & Maniskas, LLP that a class action lawsuit has been filed in United States District Court for the Southern District of California on behalf of all persons or entities that purchased the common stock of Sempra Energy ("Sempra" or the "Company") (NYSE: SRE) between May 14, 2015 and November 23, 2015, inclusive (the "Class Period").
Sempra shareholders may, no later than May 2, 2016, move the Court for appointment as a lead plaintiff of the Class. If you purchased shares of Sempra and would like to learn more about these claims or if you wish to discuss these matters and have any questions concerning this announcement or your rights, contact Richard A. Maniskas, Esquire toll-free at (877) 316-3218 or to sign up online, visit: www.rmclasslaw.com/cases/sre.
The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, defendants made materially false and misleading statements, and omitted materially adverse facts, about the Company's business, operations and prospects. As a result of defendants' alleged false and misleading statements, the Company's stock traded at artificially inflated prices during the Class Period.
According to the Complaint, on October 23, 2015, Sempra's subsidiary SoCalGas discovered a natural gas leak from the Company's Aliso Canyon natural gas storage facility near the Porter Ranch neighborhood in Los Angeles (the "Porter Ranch Leak"). Then, on November 23, 2015, displaced Porter Ranch residents filed a class action lawsuit against SoCalGas, seeking damages and an order requiring SoCalGas to disclose information related to the health risks associated with the Porter Ranch Leak.
If you are a member of the class, you may, no later than May 2, 2016, request that the Court appoint you as lead plaintiff of the class. A lead plaintiff is a representative party that acts on behalf of other class members in directing the litigation. In order to be appointed lead plaintiff, the Court must determine that the class member's claim is typical of the claims of other class members, and that the class member will adequately represent the class. Under certain circumstances, one or more class members may together serve as "lead plaintiff." Your ability to share in any recovery is not, however, affected by the decision whether or not to serve as a lead plaintiff. You may retain Ryan & Maniskas, LLP or other counsel of your choice, to serve as your counsel in this action.
