OKLAHOMA CITY, OK -- (Marketwired) -- 08/05/13 -- Today Federman & Sherwood filed the first securities class action lawsuit against ATP Oil & Gas Corp. (PINKSHEETS: ATPAQ) ("ATP") in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Texas. The complaint alleges violations of federal securities laws, Sections 10(b) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and Rule 10b-5, including allegations of filing a false and misleading Registration Statement and Prospectus on October 12, 2010, as well as issuing a series of material or false misrepresentations subsequent to the Registration Statement, all of which had the effect of artificially inflating the market price during the Class Period, which is December 16, 2010 through August 17, 2012 (the date of ATP's bankruptcy filing).
Plaintiff seeks to recover damages on behalf of all ATP shareholders who purchased common stock during the Class Period and are therefore a member of the Class as described above. You may move the Court no later than Friday, October 4, 2013 to serve as a lead plaintiff for the entire Class. However, in order to do so, you must meet certain legal requirements pursuant to the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995.
