AMERICAN FORK, Utah, Nov. 1, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- IBC Advanced Technologies, Inc.'s ("IBC") complaint against Ucore Rare Metals, Inc. ("Ucore"), et al. (the "Complaint") will proceed in Utah based on a recently unsealed ruling by United States District Court Judge Howard C. Nielson, Jr.  Judge Nielson denied Ucore's motion, in which Ucore had unsuccessfully argued that IBC's Complaint should be dismissed, or in the alternative, stayed pending outcome of legal proceedings in Canada.  In rendering his decision, Judge Nielson stated:

"Absent circumstances more extraordinary and justifications much clearer than those presented here, this court will not depart from its "virtually unflagging obligation" to exercise the jurisdiction that the Constitution and Congress have given it."
