OKLAHOMA CITY, OK--(Marketwire - Jun 12, 2012) - On June 12, 2012, Federman & Sherwood, a law firm representing investors nationwide, filed a class action lawsuit in the United States District Court for the District of Colorado against certain, current and/or former officers and directors of Delta Petroleum, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: DPTRQ), alleging violations of federal securities laws §§10(b) and 20(a) of the Securities Act of 1934 and SEC Rule 10b-5, 17 C.F.R. §240.10b-5, which includes allegations of issuing a series of material or false misrepresentations to the market which had the effect of artificially inflating the market price during the Class Period, which Federman & Sherwood has now expanded to include all shareholders who purchased common stock from March 11, 2010 through November 9, 2011.

Plaintiff seeks to recover damages on behalf of all Delta Petroleum, Inc. shareholders who purchased common stock during the expanded Class Period and are therefore a member of the Class.
