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
Date:4/4/2013

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.:

Star Scientific, Inc., et al.  A second complaint, subsequently filed in the United States District Court for the District of Massachusetts on March 26, 2013, is named Boravian v. Star Scientific, Inc., et al.  We believe that both of these complaints are without merit and we will assert numerous defenses to the claims being made.  We have hired able and experienced trial counsel who have successfully defended similar class action cases.  We will vigorously defend these suits, and we believe that we will ultimately be successful. 

Star Scientific will not be deterred by these distractions, as we stated last week.  The Company is proud of its worthy science based products, as well as the fact that these products are used by thousands of satisfied, repeat customers.  We stand behind our scientific research, and that of oth
