 MONRO REPORTS LAWSUITS TO BE DROPPED BY PLAINTIFFS
 ROCHESTER, N.Y., May 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Monro Muffler Brake, Inc.


(NASDAQ: MNRO), announced today that plaintiffs in two lawsuits commenced against the company, its directors, certain of its officers, certain shareholders, and the underwriters of its initial public offering, have decided to withdraw their claims. The lawsuits, which had been brought in federal court as purported class actions, asserted claims under federal and state law in connection with sale of shares in the public offering. Plaintiffs' counsel have indicated their intention to file dismissal papers this week because "we believe it unlikely that we will prevail."
