Investors who sued SeaWorld Entertainment for misleading on the impact of the documentary “Blackfish” have been granted class-action status.

In 2014, SeaWorld was hit with a shareholder lawsuit alleging the operator of SeaWorld parks, which includes the Mission Bay location, misled investors by publicly stating declining attendance was caused by bad weather rather than fallout from the documentary “Blackfish.”

People eligible to be included in the lawsuit must have owned SeaWorld Entertainment stock between Aug. 29, 2013 and Aug. 12, 2014, not sold it before Aug. 13, 2014, and were “damaged,” U.S. District Court Judge Michael Anello said in his order, according to the Orlando Sentinel.

Recently, Florida-based SeaWorld Entertainment announced the elimination of 350 positions nationwide, including 79 in San Diego, as part of a restructuring following a decline in revenue.
