About the Lawsuit

LinnCo and certain of its executives are charged with issuing a series of materially false and misleading statements during the Class Period, including in its IPO Registration Statement, in violation of federal securities laws. 

LinnCo owns units representing limited liability company interests in Linn Energy, LLC ("Linn"), a natural gas exploration and production company. In February and May 2013, Barron's published two articles questioning and criticizing Linn's aggressive accounting practices. Then, on July 1, 2013, Linn and LinnCo disclosed that the SEC had opened an informal inquiry into LinnCo's proposed merger with Berry Petroleum Company and Linn and LinnCo's hedging strategies and use of non-GAAP financial measures, the same accounting issues which had been criticized by Barron's.
