Constellation Energy Partners LLC (NYSE MKT: CEP) today announced that Constellation Energy Partners Management, LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of PostRock Energy Corporation (NASDAQ: PSTR), along with Gary M. Pittman, and John R. Collins, both former Class A managers of CEP, have filed a complaint in the Court of Chancery of the State of Delaware against CEP, certain of CEP’s executives and managers, and other parties related to CEP’s acquisition of oil, natural gas and natural gas liquids assets in Texas and Louisiana from Sanchez Energy Partners I, LP in August 2013 (the “PostRock Litigation”).
CEP believes that the allegations contained in the lawsuit are without merit and intends to vigorously defend itself against the claims raised in the complaint.
