TAMPA, Fla.--Attorneys here and in five otherstates in late July filed suit against several manufacturers, alleging theyfalsely marketed androstenedione (andro) as an alternative to anabolic steroids.It was reported by CNN ( thatlawsuits have been filed in circuit courts in California, Colorado, Florida, NewJersey, New York and Pennsylvania, and that a seventh suit was expected to befiled in Illinois. The attorneys are seeking class-action status for thelawsuits.

Vincent Lynch, plaintiffs' co-counsel, told CNN that thecompanies are in a difficult situation. "We believe the makers and sellersof andro are caught in a catch-22," he told CNN.
