BOSTON, MA--(Marketwired - Jun 21, 2013) - Worlds Inc. (OTCBB: WDDD) has been informed by Judge Denise Casper of the United District Court for the District of Massachusetts that the Markman Hearing in its patent infringement lawsuit against Activision Blizzard, Inc., Blizzard Entertainment, Inc. and Activision Publishing, Inc., which was originally scheduled to be held on June 27, 2013, has been rescheduled to August 22 & 23, 2013. The delay is due to the increased time Judge Casper is being required to devote to the criminal case against James (Whitey) Bulger, an alleged Massachusetts underworld crime boss.
Mr. Thom Kidrin, Worlds' President and CEO, stated, "We are disappointed about the delay, but we understand the Court's constitutional obligation to prioritize criminal matters. The delay will not be wasted, as we intend to continue to proceed with our business plans, which include taking the necessary steps to apply and qualify to be listed on the NASDAQ or another senior exchange."
