Brower Piven Informs Investors Who Have Net Losses of More Than $100,000 That They Have Only Until May 9, 2008 to Move for Appointment as Lead Plaintiff in Force Protection, Inc. Class Action Lawsuit

BALTIMORE, MD--(Marketwire - April 28, 2008) - Brower Piven, A Professional Corporation announces that shareholders of Force Protection, Inc. (NASDAQ: FRPT) ("Force Protection" or the "Company") who purchased shares of Force Protection between August 14, 2006 and March 17, 2008, inclusive (the "Class Period") have only until May 9, 2008 to move for appointment as Lead Plaintiff in a securities class action lawsuit currently pending in the United States District Court for the District of South Carolina. No class has yet been certified in the above action. To serve as a lead plaintiff, you must satisfy certain legal requirements. In making your decision, you should take into account that those with large financial losses resulting from the alleged federal securities law violations are given preference in being appointed lead plaintiff.

The complaint alleges that during the Class Period the Company, and several of its current and former executives, violated federal securities laws by issuing various materially false and misleading statements that had the effect of artificially inflating the market price of the Company's securities and causing Class members to overpay for the securities.

If you have suffered a net loss for all transactions in Force Protection, Inc. securities during the Class Period (including shares or calls purchased during, but retained after, the Class Period or put options sold but not covered until after the Class Period), you may obtain additional information about this lawsuit and your ability to become a lead plaintiff by contacting Brower Piven (without obligation or cost to you) at www.browerpiven.com, by email at hoffman@browerpiven.com, by calling 410-986-0036, or at Brower Piven, The World Trade Center-Baltimore, 401 East Pratt Street, Suite 2525, Baltimore, Maryland 21202.
