ATLANTA, GA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/31/13 -- A class action lawsuit has been filed on behalf of investors who purchased Longwei Petroleum Investment Holding LTD ("Longwei" or the "Company") (NYSE MKT: LPH) securities between May 17, 2010 and January 3, 2013. The lawsuit, which was filed in the United States District Court for the Southern District of California, alleges Longwei violated the federal securities laws by making false and misleading statements regarding its operations and financial performance. Specifically, the complaint alleges Longwei failed to disclose certain material related party transactions and, according to the complaint, overstated its wholesale fuel sales.
If you purchased Longwei common stock between May 17, 2010 and January 3, 2013 and suffered a net loss on those purchases you have the legal right to petition the Court to be appointed a "lead plaintiff." A lead plaintiff is a representative party that acts on behalf of other class members in directing the litigation. Any such request must satisfy certain criteria and be made no later than March 5, 2013. Any member of the purported 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.
