Prime Star Group & Subsidiaries Prevail in $33.9 Million Lawsuit Claim

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - November 9, 2010) -  Prime Star Group, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: PSGI) is pleased to announce that the $33.9 Million Dollar lawsuit claim that was pending against them in Federal District court of the Northern District of Indiana filed by Michiana Dairy Processors has been dismissed. The Court granted PSGI Motion for Summary Judgment, dismissing all claims against PSGI and all other Defendants. 

Roger Mohlman, Prime Star CEO, stated, "We have won a complete summary judgment. This victory will take an enormous burden off of our company and will allow us to resume our business without the distraction and huge legal expenses incurred. With the years of litigation and the rumors and innuendo surrounding this lawsuit now behind us, it is great to be finally and completely vindicated. Removing this $33.9 million contingent liability is another huge step forward for Prime Star and its shareholders. We are so happy to have this meritless case behind us so we can now fully concentrate on utilizing all our time and energy into the growth of the company."

"We are extremely proud of the work that Lyle Hardman of Hunt, Suedhoff and Kalamaros (www.hsk-law.com) did in helping us to get this lawsuit dismissed. He clearly and concisely stated the facts of the case and the law, which led to the court ruling in our favor. Lyle is an outstanding attorney and we cannot thank him enough. He, Jennifer Worth, Tom Hamilton and Ivan Schwartz took the time to really learn the background and the issues of the claims against us and then used the relevant law to show these claims to be unfounded," Mohlman said.

"This case had languished in state court for over five years. Hunt, Suedhoff and Kalamaros came on board in March 2010 and took over the bulk of the case. Prime Star Group, and the other defendants were the prevailing parties on summary judgment, and all that is left pending is PSGI's claim for attorney's fees and a pending motion for sanctions against opposing counsel," said Mohlman.
