Deadline of April 2, 2012 in Hecla Mining Company Securities Fraud Lawsuit

Investors are reminded of the upcoming April 2, 2012 Deadline in the pending Hecla Mining Company Securities Fraud Lawsuit

The national securities law firm of Gilman Law LLP reminds investors that the Hecla Mining Company Securities Fraud Lawsuit has a deadline on April 2, 2012. If you purchased or otherwise acquired shares of Hecla Mining Company (NYSE:HL) common stock between October 26, 2010, and January 11, 2012, you are encouraged to contact Gilman Law for more information about your rights to recovery.

The class action lawsuit alleges certain securities law violations by Hecla and its officers or directors. Specifically, Hecla received several accident reports regarding various accidents in its Lucky Friday mine. The Lucky Friday accidents were serious and even fatal in some instances. Further, the nature of these safety problems were never made public, thereby causing the price of Hecla’s stock to trade at artificially high prices during the Class Period. Once the mine closed for a period of time, Hecla’s stock price dropped substantially.

Will SEC Allow Carlyle Group To Waive Shareholder Rights?

Recently Carlyle Group, L.P., a private equity firm, is preparing to go public and has filed various regulatory documentation with the Securities and Exchange Commission. One of Carlyle Group’s filings is a partnership agreement that purports to limit the rights of its shareholders by banning the option to pursue a class action lawsuit or class-wide arbitration in the event Carlyle Group engages in wrongful conduct that would warrant such a suit. This proposal is following in the wake of the recent Supreme Court decision AT&T Mobility v. Concepcion. If the SEC chooses to ignore this provision of Carlyle Group’s partnership agreement, and allows it to continue with its public offering without question, this could have a dramatic negative effect on future shareholders of other companies seeking to make a public offering. Read more about Carlyle Group’s Waiver of Class Arbitration at the Securities Law Professor’s Blog.
