LEXTRON OF FLORIDA SETTLES CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT

 JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Dec. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Lextron of Florida, Inc., a pharmaceutical company has agreed to settle a nationwide class action law suit brought by a group of Florida cattlemen for an undisclosed amount.
 The Miami law firm of Sheehe Vendittelli Levine Cunningham & Doyle, P.A., represented the group in the action. An order approving the settlement was signed last week by Judge John H. Moore II in the United States District Court in Jacksonville.
 In the law suit filed earlier this year, the plaintiffs alleged that an excess of 700,000 cattle had ingested an altered and counterfeit drug marketed in counterfeit packaging. It was alleged that the use of the altered and counterfeit drug was pervasive in Florida's $1 billion beef industry.
 As a result of the use of this counterfeit drug, cattle had suffered serious health problems. Feed efficiency and productivity had declined. Cattle have suffered weight loss.
 As a consequence, Florida's ranchers had suffered a loss in income, increased costs and damage to their reputation.
 "This is a very favorable settlement for cattle producers throughout the United States and will help ensure that counterfeit products will not be sold in the state of Florida," said Phillip J. Sheehe, attorney for the plaintiff.
 The Miami law firm of Sheehe Vendittelli Levine Cunningham & Doyle, P.A., is a full service civil litigation firm including product- liability, commercial, family, real estate, personal injury, negligence and commercial litigation.
 Sheehe Vendittelli's offices are at 201 South Biscayne Blvd., Ste. 1800, Miami. The telephone number is 305-379-3515
