SAN DIEGO, March 9 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Patriot Scientific Corporation (OTC Bulletin Board: PTSC - News) announced today that United States District Judge Jeremy Fogel in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California, San Jose Division, issued an order on March 8, 2005 disqualifying Patriot's counsel, Beatie and Osborn LLP of New York and Bramson, Plutzik, Mahler & Birkhauser LLP of California, as well as denying Patriot's motion to allow the testimony of Willis E. Higgins, Esq. Patriot believes the order contains serious errors of fact and law and is considering various means for correcting the result.
In the meantime, during the time the motion was sub judice, Patriot obtained additional evidence that Russell H. Fish III was the sole inventor of the '336 patent and that statements by Fish and Higgins about communications between them are true. Patriot will move for reconsideration and review based upon factual and legal inconsistencies.
