PHILADELPHIA, Aug. 24, 2007 LAWFUEL – The Legal Newswire — Law Offices Bernard M. Gross, P.C. announces that the firm has filed a class action lawsuit in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois, Civil Action No. 07-4782, on behalf of purchasers of the common stock of Motorola, Inc. (NYSE:MOT) between July 19, 2006 and January 4, 2007, inclusive (the “Class Period”), seeking to pursue remedies under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Exchange Act”).
If you wish to serve as lead plaintiff, you must move the Court no later than October 14, 2007. If you wish to discuss this action or have any questions concerning this notice or your rights or interests, please contact plaintiff’s counsel, Deborah R. Gross or Susan R.

The complaint alleges that Motorola, its CEO Edward Zander and other officers, Ronald Garriques, David Devonshire, Gregory Brown, Daniel Moloney, Richard Nottenburg and Padmasree Warrior, issued statements concerning the Company’s sales and revenues while knowing that certain customers had deferred significant orders awaiting the development of new products and product lines. Additionally, Motorola was facing pricing pressures affecting margins and revenues. During the Class Period, six of the Individual Defendants sold over 3 million shares of MOT common stock for proceeds in excess of $26 million.
On January 4, 2007, MOT surprised the market and announced that its fourth quarter sales and earnings were below that previously estimated by the Company. In response to this announcement, the price of MOT common stock declined from $20.55 to $18.60 in two trading days on heavy trading volume.
Plaintiff seeks to recover damages on behalf of all those who purchased the common stock of MOT between July 19, 2006 and January 4, 2007. The plaintiff is represented by Law Offices Bernard M. Gross P.C., a Philadelphia law firm, which has expertise in prosecuting investor class actions and extensive experience in actions involving financial fraud. In order to serve as lead plaintiff, however, you must meet certain legal requirements.
