Item 8.01 Other Events.

On January 12, 2007, Cirrus Logic, Inc. (the "Company") was informed that a shareholder derivative suit against current and certain former directors and executive officers of the Company was filed in state district court in Travis County, Texas on January 5, 2007. The complaint alleges, among other things, that certain of the Company’s current and past officers and directors breached fiduciary duties to the Company relating to certain prior grants of Company stock options. The Company is currently evaluating the lawsuit. Regardless of the outcome, this litigation, and any other litigation that may be brought against the Company or its directors and officers, could be time consuming, result in significant expense, divert the attention and resources of the Company’s management and other key employees, and could have a material adverse effect on the Company’s business, results of operations and cash flows.

The Company’s previously announced independent review of its historical stock option grant processes remains on-going.
