Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP Encourages Investors Who Suffered Losses In Excess Of $100,000 Investing In Sempra Energy To Contact The Firm Before Lead Plaintiff Deadline
Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a leading national securities law firm, reminds investors in Sempra Energy (“Sempra” or the “Company”) (NYSE:SRE) of the April 29, 2016 deadline to seek the role of lead plaintiff in a federal securities class action lawsuit filed against the Company and certain officers.
The lawsuit has been filed in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of California on behalf of all those who purchased Sempra securities between May 14, 2015 and November 23, 2015 (the “Class Period”). The case, Plumley v. Sempra Energy, et al, No. 3:16-cv-00512 was filed on February 29, 2016, and has been assigned to Judge Roger T. Benitez.
The lawsuit focuses on whether the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws by failing to disclose whether the Company’s subsidiary lacked the capability to expeditiously repair gas leaks and control their severe threat to public safety and health.
Specifically, throughout October 2015, Sempra’s subsidiary, Southern California Gas Company (“SoCalGas”), uncovered a natural gas leak from one of its well close to the Porter Ranch neighborhood in Los Angeles. After Porter Ranch residents reported suffering from symptoms including headaches, nausea, and nosebleeds, thousands of families were relocated from the area as SoCalGas struggled to close off the well. Since the incident was discovered, the complaint alleges that attempts to seal it have been unsuccessful.
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. Due to these developments, the value of Sempra stock has declined..
