LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Glancy Prongay & Murray LLP (“GPM”) announces an investigation on behalf of investors of Sempra Energy (“Sempra” or the “Company”) (NYSE: SRE) concerning the Company and its officers’ possible violations of federal securities laws. Investors who have suffered losses on their investment in Sempra securities are encouraged to contact GPM to discuss their legal rights.
In October 2015, Sempra’s subsidiary, Southern California Gas Company (SoCalGas), uncovered a natural gas leak from a 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.
Then, on February 2, 2016, California Attorney General Kamala D. Harris filed a lawsuit against SoCalGas, citing numerous and serious violations of state health and safety laws. On the very same day, Los Angeles County filed criminal charges against SoCalGas for its failure and/or unwillingness to report the leak immediately after it was discovered.
On January 6, 2016, post-market, California Governor Jerry Brown announced a state of emergency. Upon this news, shares of Sempra fell approximately 5.4%, to close at $87.00 on January 7, 2016.
