Parker & Waichman, LLP and affiliated counsel (http://www.worldcomstockfraud.com)
announce that they have filed a new round of claims on behalf of current and former WorldCom and MCI shareholders.
Many of these current and former MCI and WorldCom shareholders were not aware that shares of MCI WorldCom trading under the symbols WCOEQ and MCWEQ will likely be cancelled when the company emerges from bankruptcy. Parker & Waichman continues to encourage all current and former WorldCom and MCI shareholders to evaluate their legal options before participating in the class action lawsuit. Parker & Waichman continues to offer free lawsuit case evaluations at: http://www.worldcomstockfraud.com and http://www.worldcomemployeelawsuit.com .
Parker & Waichman and associated counsel are currently representing thousands of current and former WorldCom/MCI shareholders and employees who have opted out of the class action lawsuit that was certified last year by Judge Denise Cote in the Southern District of New York. Parker & Waichman’s team has filed claims against Salomon Smith Barney, now operating as Citigroup Global Markets, a unit of Citigroup, Inc. (NYSE: C) on behalf of MCI WorldCom investors. These individuals have been financially injured by the fraudulent and inappropriate advice of Smith Barney. Former Salomon Smith Barney analyst Jack Grubman has also been named in the claims.
