The reports were related to the management and directors of Legend Oil and Gas and were published by SeekingAlpha.com and released on November 20 and November 21, 2011.
Legend stated: 'It appears as though Mr. Silbermann's intent through the generation of these inflammatory articles, is to instill investor panic and create a downward trend in the Company's stock price. A fall in the Company's stock price would result in personal gain for Mr. Silbermann because he is short the stock. We strongly and vigorously deny the allegations made by Mr. Silbermann in his articles'
