BALTIMORE, MD–(EMWNews – July 15, 2008) – Brower Piven, A Professional Corporation

announces that a class action lawsuit has been commenced in the United

States District Court for the District of Central District of California

The complaint charges defendants with violations under the Securities

Exchange Act of 1934 by withholding material facts from the investing

public. The complaint alleges that during the Class Period, defendants

made false and misleading statements concerning the Company’s employee

stock option grant practices and financial results including: that the

Company had problems with its internal controls that prevented it from

issuing accurate financial reports and projections; that due to improperly

recorded stock-based compensation expenses the Company’s financial results

violated GAAP; and that the Company’s public disclosures covering a

seven-year period presented an inflated view of MRV’s earnings and earnings

per share. The complaint also alleges that on June 5, 2008, MRV announced

an expected restatement of its 2002 to 2008 financial statements and that

its previously-issued financial statements, earnings press releases, and

similar communications should no longer be relied upon, thus causing the

value of Company shares to decline.

Inc. common stock during the Class Period, you may obtain additional
