LONDON, May 25 /PRNewswire/ --
TerreStar Europe Limited, an indirect, majority-owned subsidiary of TerreStar Corporation (Nasdaq: TSTR), announced that it has brought an action against the European Commission before the Court of First Instance in Luxembourg, seeking the annulment of the Decision of 13 May 2009 selecting two operators of pan-European mobile satellite services (MSS) in the EU.
TerreStar Europe believes that a prompt and narrowly focused review by the Court can address the Commission's mistake without interfering with the Commission's goals for this process. The Commission's Decision excluded TerreStar Europe on a technicality at a preliminary stage of the selection procedure. The action argues that the Commission misread TerreStar Europe's submission, finding an inconsistency where none existed. In addition, the Commission failed to investigate the supposed inconsistency -- and notably failed to review the clarifications voluntarily submitted by TerreStar Europe, which fully explained the issue.
TerreStar Europe asked the Court to rule on this case quickly and to suspend the Decision until the Court issues its ruling. TerreStar Europe believes that it serves no one's interest for the resolution of the selection and authorization of S-Band MSS systems to be unduly delayed.
