SeaWorld To Pay $5-Million+ To Settle Federal Fraudulent Charges

SeaWorld and a former executive will pay more than $5-million to settle federal fraud charges.

The Securities and Exchange Commission accused SeaWorld and ex-CEO James Atchison of failing to inform investors about the adverse impact the documentary film Blackfish had on the theme park company's reputation and business.  

Blackfish was critical of SeaWorld's treatment of its killer whales.  

In a statement, SeaWorld pointed out that the settlement with the SEC was reached without admitting or denying the allegations.
