DALLAS – There are only 6 more days until the January 30, 2006 deadline to file for appointment of Lead Plaintiff in the pending class action lawsuit against Stone Energy Corp. (NYSE:SGY – News)(“Stone Energy” or the “Company”). If you purchased the securities of Stone Energy between June 17, 2005 and October 6, 2005, inclusive (the "Class Period"), you may contact Baron & Budd, P.C. to discuss your legal options.
On November 30, 2005, the first complaint was filed against Stone Energy alleging violations of the Federal securities laws. This suit arose from the Company's October 6, 2005 press release announcing that it intended to take a significant reserve write-down, among other things. Then, on November 8, 2005, the Company issued a press release announcing that it will restate its financial statements for the periods from 2001 to 2004 and for the first six months of 2005.

On this news, Stone Energy shares fell $7.93, or almost 14 percent, to close at $48.14 per share on unusually heavy trading volume.
