The law firm of Brower Piven, A Professional Corporation, today announced that a securities class action was commenced on behalf of shareholders who purchased or otherwise acquired the common stock of Apple Computer, Inc. between December 1, 2005 and August 11, 2006, inclusive.
The case is pending in the United States District Court for the Northern District of California against defendant Apple and one or more of its officers and/or directors. The action charges that defendants violated federal securities laws by issuing a series of materially false and misleading statements to the market throughout the Class Period, which statements had the effect of artificially inflating the market price of the Company’s securities.
