WILMINGTON, MA--(Marketwire - June 24, 2010) -  Implant Sciences Corporation (PINKSHEETS: IMSC), a high technology supplier of systems and sensors for the homeland security and defense markets, today announced the successful resolution of litigation stemming from its sale of Accurel Systems International to Evans Analytical Group in 2007. As a result of this action, 1,000,000 shares of Implant Sciences Series E preferred stock held in escrow have been cancelled. The total value of the cancelled shares was $5 million.
