Universal Express Applauds Las Vegas Court Decision; Michael Jackson Ordered to Court, and Publicity for Auction Resumes

NEW YORK, NY -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 16, 2007 -- Universal Express Inc. (OTCBB: USXP) CEO and Chairman Richard Altomare's witnesses and Michael Jackson himself will square off in Court this Friday in Las Vegas to determine ownership of hundreds of millions of dollars worth of Jackson memorabilia items.

"In Las Vegas' response to Miami's 'who's the father' or California's question 'does the glove fit,' Michael Jackson and Universal Express' CEO will give testimony to clarify the trail of ownership of thousands of purchased items of the Jackson family (www.usxp.com/jackson), which are scheduled to be auctioned on May 30th and 31st in Las Vegas at the Hard Rock Casino," said Richard A. Altomare.

Mr. Altomare continued, "I have instructed our counsel to request cameras in this courtroom to clearly show our long held position of legal ownership.

"Emotions are understandable but actual possession, documentation and previous legal rulings present our case most soundly.

"Mr. Jackson will be questioned by Universal Express attorneys and asked to identify items, as our witnesses and documentation stands ready for exposure. I trust Mr. Jackson is equally prepared," concluded Richard A. Altomare.
