Zynga (ZNGA - Get Report) shares continued to decline, as the company is being sued in a class-action lawsuit. On Monday, law firm Morgan & Morgan sent out a reminder to plaintiffs in the suit, which alleges that Zynga violated federal securities laws, overstating growth, which caused a sharp drop in the share price after second-quarter earnings. Shares of Zynga slipped 1.31% to $3.02 in mid-Tuesday trade. Interested in more on Zynga? See TheStreet Ratings' report card for this stock. -- Written by Chris Ciaccia in New York >Contact by Email.
