Star Scientific, Inc. Issues Statement in Response to Two Plaintiffs' Purported Class Action Law Suits and Multiple Press Releases Issued by Plaintiffs' Law Firms Trolling for New Clients

GLEN ALLEN, Va., April 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Paul L. Perito, Esquire, Chairman, President and COO of Star Scientific, Inc. (NASDAQ: STSI), issued the following statement on behalf of Star Scientific and Rock Creek Pharmaceuticals, Inc.:
