Zynga accused of insider trading
SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- The maker of the popular web video game, Farmville, has been hit with a class action lawsuit alleging insider trading.
The suit claims executives of San Francisco-based Zynga knew the company was struggling when they sold millions of shares before announcing a substantial drop in projected earnings.
Last week Zynga reported second quarter earnings of 23 to 29 cents a share. Since that time, the company's shares have dropped 40 percent.
