Delta Petroleum Investor Alert – The Briscoe Law Firm And Powers Taylor, LLP Announce Investigation Of The Officers And Directors Of Delta Petroleum Corp. For Possible Breaches Of Fiduciary Duties

Former United States Securities and Exchange Commission attorney Willie Briscoe, founder of The Briscoe Law Firm, PLLC, and the securities litigation firm of Powers Taylor, LLP announce that the firms are investigating legal claims against the officers and Board of Directors of Delta Petroleum Corp. (“Delta Petroleum” or “DPTRQ”) (OTC: DPTRQ) related to potential securities violations between November 9, 2010 and November 9, 2011 (the “Class Period”).

If you are an affected investor and you want to learn more about the lawsuit or join the action, contact Patrick Powers at Powers Taylor, LLP, toll free (877) 728-9607, via e-mail at patrick@powerstaylor.com, or Willie Briscoe at The Briscoe Law Firm, PLLC, (214) 706-9314, or via email at WBriscoe@TheBriscoeLawFirm.com. There is no cost or fee to you.

In a recently filed federal class action complaint, Delta Petroleum’s officers and directors were charged with violating the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. Specifically, the complaint alleges that defendants’ made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) Delta Petroleum was not adequately reserving for its dry hole costs and impairments in violation of GAAP, causing its financial results to be materially misstated; (2) Delta Petroleum’s unproductive assets would hinder its ability to find a buyer for itself or its assets as the value of Delta Petroleum’s assets was less than the value of its aggregate debt; and (3) Delta Petroleum had far greater exposure to liquidity concerns than it had previously disclosed. The complaint further alleges that on December 16, 2011, Delta Petroleum announced that it had filed for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy shortly after reporting a net loss of approximately $429 million. As a result of the alleged false statements and omissions, the complaint alleges that Delta Petroleum stock traded at artificially inflated prices during the Class Period, which then dropped 94% from their Class Period high after these revelations reached the market.
