Ticker Symbol: NYSE: MMA
Class Period: January 30, 2003 to January 28, 2008
Date Filed: Jan-30-08
Lead Plaintiff Deadline: Mar-31-08
Court: Southern District, NY
A class action lawsuit has been filed on behalf of all purchasers of Municipal Mortgage & Equity, LLC ("MMA" or the "Company") (NYSE:MMA) stock during the period from January 30, 2003 through January 28, 2008 (the "Class Period").

The case is pending in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York as case no. 08-CV-980 (RMB).

The complaint charges that MMA and certain of its present and former officers, directors, and control persons violated Sections 10(b) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 by issuing materially false and misleading statements pertaining to MMA's business prospects, financial condition, and financial performance.

The lawsuit charges that, during the Class Period, the Company and its officers and directors, caused to be issued numerous false and misleading statements concerning the adequacy of the Company's internal controls and the value and performance of its tax-exempt bond portfolio. The Complaint alleges that defendants failed to disclose and misrepresented the true financial condition and operations of the Company.

On January 28, 2008, the Company announced that it was slashing its dividend and would again delay the filing of its restated financials. Before the market opened the following day, the Company disclosed that the previously announced restatement would impact an even greater portion of the Company's business. As a result of these disclosures, the Company's stock opened for trading at $12.33 per share and closed at $9.19 per share, or 46% below the prior day's close.

If you acquired the securities of the defendants during the Class Period you may, no later than the Lead Plaintiff Deadline shown above, request that the Court appoint you as lead plaintiff through counsel of your choice. You may also choose to remain an absent class member. A lead plaintiff must meet certain requirements.
