The securities class action alleges that defendants issued materially false financial statements for Patriot by capitalizing the costs of an expensive environmental remediation program, rather than expensing the costs as incurred. As a result, Patriot reported materially greater net income than actually earned under generally accepted accounting principles.

If you wish to serve as lead plaintiff, you must move the Court no later than November 21, 2012. A lead plaintiff is a representative party acting on behalf of other class members in directing the litigation.
