LINN ENERGY INVESTIGATION INITIATED BY FORMER LOUISIANA ATTORNEY GENERAL: Kahn Swick & Foti, LLC Investigates Linn Energy, LLC Following Disclosure of SEC Inquiry

NEW ORLEANS--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Former Attorney General of Louisiana, Charles C. Foti, Jr., Esq. a partner at the law firm of Kahn Swick & Foti, LLC ("KSF") announces that KSF has commenced an investigation into Linn Energy, LLC ("Linn"). (NAS: LINE) .

Linn is a natural gas exploration and production company. In February and May 2013, Barron's published two articles questioning and criticizing Linn's aggressive accounting practices. Then, on July 1, 2013, Linn and LinnCo, LLC, which owns units representing limited liability company interests in Linn, disclosed that the SEC had opened an informal inquiry into Linn and LinnCo's proposed merger with Berry Petroleum Company, as well as Linn and LinnCo's hedging strategies and use of non-GAAP financial measures, the same accounting issues which had been criticized by Barron's.


KSF's investigation is focusing on whether Linn's officers and/or directors breached their fiduciary duties to Linn's shareholders or otherwise violated state or federal laws.
