In its complaint, Bernard M. Gross, P.C. alleged LINN made false and / or misleading statements besides failing to disclose material adverse facts about the company’s business, operations and prospects. More specifically, the law office alleged LINN fraudulently misrepresented the true risk associated with the company’s ability to continue to issue stable or increasing cash distributions.

The law office alleged Linn Energy LLC (NASDAQ:LINE) disseminated key financial metrics to investors that deceptively excluded the cost of options it used to hedge against fluctuations in the price of oil and natural gas, but included the proceeds the company received from the sale or exercise of such options.

According to the class action suit, when LINN disclosed on July 1, 2013, that the Securities Exchange Commission opened an informal inquiry, LINN unites fell to $10.50 from $22.79 in over two days.

Bernard M. Gross, P.C. indicated that any investor interested to serve as lead plaintiff should move the court before September 9, 2013.
