Deleware (PRWEB) September 18, 2008
Optima Technology Group, Inc. today announced that in recent settlement discussions between Universal Avionics Systems Corporation ("Universal") and Optima Technology Group ("Optima)" in Case No. 07-CV-00588-RC in The United States District Court For the District of Arizona, Universal has attempted to bypass the Federal courts and is now refusing to honor its settlement agreement by, among other things, attempting to extort a free license for an unrelated patent application not included in the current federal case.
Universal is also now falsely claiming, citing untrue statements from others in the industry, that Optima has made statements of a mysterious settlement between Optima and Garmin LTD (Public, NASDAQ:GRMN).
According to Optima CEO Robert Adams, "This is nothing more than another attempt by Universal to extort a stipulation of non-infringement so that their attorney (Scott J. Bornstein of Greenberg Traurig), who also represents Garmin, can later use it for his other clients. Our company is willing to abide by the original terms of the settlement agreement but we will not be intimidated by their recent extortion attempt(s). I think Universal is doing this because they just plain hate us."
