Star Navigation is on the ropes after a Northern California Judge struck a legal blow by tossing out Star's patent infringement case against AeroMechanical.

The punch wasn't a knockout blow but it left Star reeling.

Basically, the Judge granted AeroMechanical's motion for an early dismissal of Star's case because those claiming to be patent holders for Star's technology were not formally listed as plaintiffs.

Star Navigation was the only plaintiff.

The Judge ruled that unless Star's former top executive, Hilary Viera, and its current top executive, Viraf Kapadia, formally joined the patent infringement case against AeroMechancial, Star couldn't proceed.

The judge gave Star until April 30th to have Viera and Kapadia sign on.

That could prove interesting because Kapadia allegedly fired Viera from Star last year and Star subsequently sued Viera in an Ontario court.
