There’s some good news for Chris Stott:

The Chief Executive of MannSat, Chris Stott, has been dismissed from a lawsuit which had been filed in the United States.

A woman from Houston in Texas had brought the case against Excalibur Exploration Chairman Arthur M. Dula and CEO J. Buckner Hightower.

Donna Beck alleged Mr Dula defrauded her and her late husband out of $300,000 by claiming his company had a ‘special rocket engine’ to ‘travel in space to a distant asteroid and mine precious metals’.
