LEE COUNTY, Fla.- Lee County is going to court to recover money from VR Labs.

The county attorney's office is suing in circuit court. It wants VR to return nearly $5 million tax-payer.

In the suit, Lee County claims that VR has not met its obligations to bottle health drinks and create dozens of jobs. The company received the money several years ago. It says it is held up by lawsuits involving contractors and other legal disputes.
