Levi & Korsinsky is investigating potential claims on behalf of purchasers of Assisted Living Concepts Inc. (“Assisted Living” or the “Company”) (NYSE: ALC) securities concerning possible violations of federal securities laws. For more information, click here: http://www.zlk.com/assisted-living-concepts-alc. On May 4, 2012, shares of Assisted Living fell 12% after the Company announced it was retaining counsel to investigate “possible irregularities” in connection with its lease with Ventas Realty, Limited Partnership (“Ventas Realty”), the landlord for eight assisted living facilities operated by Assisted Living. Furthermore, Georgia and Alabama have revoked the Company’s licenses to operate three facilities. Ventas Realty views these revocations as violations of Assisted Living’s lease agreement, and as such has commenced a lawsuit against the Company in United State District Court for the Northern District of Illinois, seeking a declaratory judgment that Assisted Living breached its obligations under the building lease and forfeited its right to possession.
