U.S. Court Denies Aeromechanical Services Ltd. Motion for Sanctions Against Star Navigation

    TORONTO, May 13 /CNW/ - Star Navigation Systems Group Ltd. (TSX-V: SNA)
("Star" or the "Company"), a leading edge technology company focused on
providing Aerospace Solutions, both hardware and software platforms to assist
aviation operators worldwide, announces that a motion for sanctions brought by
Aeromechanical Services Ltd. (TSX-V: AMA) against Star, was dismissed on May
12, 2009 by the United States District Court for the Northern District of
California (the "Court"). Aeromechanical Services Ltd. ("AMS") sought an award
of attorney's fees, arguing that Star had filed and prosecuted an action
against them in bad faith. Star had previously dismissed a complaint against
AMS for infringement of Star's U.S. Pat. No. 7,113,852 (See Press Releases
March 17, and April 7, 2009). The Court held that Star's voluntary dismissal
of the action against AMS did not warrant a conclusion that Star prosecuted
the action in bad faith. The Court therefore denied AMS's motion. Star will
continue to monitor the situation with AMS and will consider further action if
the circumstances warrant it.
