NEW YORK, Nov. 5, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Gainey McKenna & Egleston announces that a class action lawsuit has been filed in United States District Court for the District of New Jersey, on behalf of all persons who purchased Amarin Corp. plc ("Amrin") (Nasdaq:AMRN) securities during the period July 9, 2009 through October 15, 2013, and who were damaged thereby.
