Plaintiff in the SRS Action seeks to recover damages on behalf of all Class members who purchased or otherwise acquired shares of ProShares SRS. If you purchased or otherwise acquired ProShares SRS shares, and either lost money on the transaction or still hold the shares, you may wish to join in the action to serve as lead plaintiff. In order to do so, you must meet certain requirements set forth in the applicable law and file appropriate papers no later than October 5, 2009.
A "lead plaintiff" is a representative party that acts on behalf of other class members in directing the litigation. In order to be appointed lead plaintiff, the court must determine that the class member's claim is typical of the claims of other class members, and that the class member will adequately represent the class. Under certain circumstances, one or more class members may together serve as lead plaintiff. Your ability to share in any recovery is not, however, affected by the decision whether or not to serve as a lead plaintiff. You may retain Bernstein Liebhard LLP, or other counsel of your choice, to serve as your counsel in this action.
If you purchased or otherwise acquired shares in any of the Funds listed above, and either lost money on the transaction or still hold the shares, please call our office to discuss your rights.
