Catalina Marina Del Rey Flyer -- the Ferry to Catalina From Marina Del Rey -- Wins Court Battle Over Rights

MARINA DEL REY, CA--(Marketwire - August 6, 2008) - CATALINA-MARINA DEL REY FLYER ("Marina Flyer") (Sea Planes, Inc), operating luxury scheduled passenger ferry service from Fisherman's Village in Marina Del Rey (near LAX, Venice, Santa Monica) to Avalon and Two Harbors on Catalina Island, was sued in 2006 by a small company named Pacific Adventure Cruises ("Pacific") for allegedly interfering, unlawfully, with their charter boat business. In a civil trial in Los Angeles Superior Court that ended yesterday, Catalina-Marina Del Rey Flyer was completely vindicated and prevailed on each of these allegations. Twelve jurors, in a unanimous verdict on all counts, confirmed that the charges by Pacific were entirely without any merit.

This was great news for us and will allow us to return to focusing on our primary business objective... taking passengers to Catalina on scheduled ferry service from Marina Del Rey, and expanding our public service. We are delighted that the twelve jurors in this case saw through the smoke and mirrors put up by Pacific and were able to get to the heart of the case.
