NEW ORLEANS (Business Wire) -- Former Attorney General of Louisiana, Charles C. Foti, Jr., Esq., a partner at the law firm of Kahn Swick & Foti, LLC (“KSF”), announces that KSF has commenced an investigation into Dish Network Corp. (“Dish”) (Nasdaq: DISH).

The investigation concerns Dish's bid for LightSquared Inc. (“LightSqaured”). According to recent articles, the LightSquared deal may deliver hundreds of millions of dollars of personal profits to Dish's Chairman, Charlie Ergen. A Dish director resigned in recent weeks, purportedly in connection with a disagreement over Dish's handling of the bid for LightSquared and a potential conflict of interest with regard to Mr. Ergen.

KSF's investigation is focusing on whether Dish's officers and/or directors breached their fiduciary duties to Dish's shareholders or otherwise violated state or federal laws.
