Rigrodsky & Long, P.A. Announces A Securities Fraud Class Action Lawsuit Has Been Filed Against Sempra Energy (NYSE: SRE)

Rigrodsky & Long, P.A. announces that a complaint has been filed in the 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”), alleging violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 against the Company and certain of its officers (the “Complaint”).

If you purchased shares of Sempra during the Class Period, or purchased shares prior to the Class Period and still hold Sempra, and wish to discuss this action or have any questions concerning this notice or your rights or interests, please contact Timothy J.

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 wish to serve as lead plaintiff, you must move the Court no later than May 2, 2016.  A lead plaintiff is a representative party acting on behalf of other class members in directing the litigation.  Any member of the proposed class may move the court to serve as lead plaintiff through counsel of their choice, or may choose to do nothing and remain an absent class member.
