NEW YORK, June 13, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Bragar Eagel & Squire, P.C. announces that a class action lawsuit has been filed in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California on behalf of all persons or entities who purchased or otherwise acquired PG&E Corporation (NYSE:PCG) securities between April 29, 2015 and June 8, 2018 (the “Class Period”). Investors have until August 13, 2018 to apply to the Court to be appointed as lead plaintiff in the lawsuit.

The complaint alleges that defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that (1) PG&E had failed to maintain electricity transmission and distribution networks in compliance with safety requirements and regulations promulgated under state law; (2) consequently, PG&E was in violation of state law regulation; (3) PG&E's electricity networks would cause numerous wildfires in California; and (4) as a result of the foregoing, Defendants' statements about the Company's business and operations were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.

On June 9, 2018, Bloomberg published an article entitled "PG&E May Face Criminal Charges After Probe of Deadly Wildfires." The article reported that an investigation into the causes of California wildfires in October 2017 by California's fire agency "found evidence of alleged violations of law by PG&E in connection with" the fires.
