Rigrodsky & Long, P.A. announces that it is investigating potential legal claims against the board of directors of Lorillard, Inc. ("Lorillard" or the "Company") (NYSE: LO) regarding possible breaches of fiduciary duties and other violations of law related to the Company's entry into an agreement to be acquired by Reynolds American Inc.
