DENVER, April 1, 2008 LAWFUEL — Dyer & Berens LLP announced today that it has filed a proposed class-action lawsuit on behalf of investors who purchased Schwab YieldPlus Fund Select Shares
(Nasdaq:SWYSX) from Charles Schwab Corporation (“Charles Schwab” or the
“Company”) (Nasdaq:SCHW) between March 17, 2005 and March 17, 2008 (the “Class Period”). The case was filed in the United States District Court for the Northern District of California and the claims are asserted under secs. 11, 12(a)(2) and 15 of the federal Securities Act of 1933.
In the Complaint, the plaintiff alleges that Charles Schwab, the fund’s underwriter, and others, misled investors about the underlying risk in the fund, including its exposure to the sub-prime mortgage market. The fund was not well diversified and instead was concentrated in the mortgage industry.
If you are a member of the Class, you may, no later than May 16, 2008, request that the Court appoint you as lead plaintiff for the Class. A lead plaintiff is a class member that acts on behalf of other class members in directing the litigation. Although your ability to share in any recovery is not affected by the decision whether or not to seek appointment as a lead plaintiff, lead plaintiffs make important decisions which could affect the overall recovery for class members.
