Harwood Feffer LLP Announces Investigation of Dish Network Corp.

22:25 EDT Wednesday, September 11, 2013

NEW YORK, Sept. 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Harwood Feffer LLP (www.hfesq.com) is investigating potential claims against the board of directors of Dish Network Corp. ("Dish Network" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: DISH) concerning whether the board has breached its fiduciary duties to shareholders.

On September 11, 2013, an article in The Wall Street Journal reported that a director of the Company recently resigned due to a disagreement over the Company's handling of a potential transaction with Light Squared Inc.  The disagreement relates to a conflict of interest whereby Dish Network's CEO, Charlie Ergen, stands to personally profit due to the transaction.

Our investigation concerns whether the Company board of directors has breached its fiduciary duties to shareholders, grossly mismanaged the Company, and/or committed abuses of control in connection with the foregoing.
