NEW YORK, Feb. 8, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Attorney Advertising -- Bronstein, Gewirtz & Grossman, LLC is investigating potential claims on behalf of purchasers of the securities of Sempra Energy ("Sempra" or the "Company") (NYSE: SRE). Such investors are advised to contact Peretz Bronstein or his Investor Relations Analyst, Yael Hurwitz at or 212-697-6484.

This investigation concerns whether Sempra and certain of its officers and/or directors have violated the Federal Securities Laws under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the "Exchange Act").

Southern California Gas Company (SoCalGas), a subsidiary of Sempra Energy, discovered a natural gas leak from a well near Porter Ranch, Los Angeles in late October 2015.  After neighborhood locals reported symptoms including headaches, nausea, and severe nosebleeds, thousands of families were moved away from this area, so the SoCalGas could seal the well.  A state of emergency was declared on January 6, 2016, post-market, by California Governor Jerry Brown

Following this news, Sempra Energy stock fell $5.00, or 5.4%, to close at just $87.00 per share on January 7, 2016.  On February 2, 2016, a lawsuit was filed against SoCalGas alleging violations of state health and safety laws by the California Attorney General, Kamala D. Harris. That same day, Los Angeles County filed criminal charges against SoCalGas for failing to immediately report the leak and danger.
