NEW YORK, March 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Harwood Feffer LLP (www.hfesq.com) is investigating potential claims against the board of directors of Star Scientific, Inc. ("Star Scientific" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: STSI), concerning whether the board has breached its fiduciary duties to shareholders.
In January 2013, media reports accused the Company of misleading investors regarding the involvement of Johns Hopkins University in the clinical testing for a nutritional supplement. On March 18, 2013, the Company disclosed that it had received subpoenas from the U.S. Attorney's office in connection with certain related party transactions since 2006.
Our investigation concerns whether the Company board of directors has breached its fiduciary duties to shareholders, grossly mismanaged the Company, and/or committed abuses of control in connection with the foregoing.
