Deposition and Exhibits from June 14th, 1974 from the case Magnavox v Bally et al, consolidated case number 74 C 1030.
The deposition features David Braun, then CEO of Allied Leisure discussing his company's involvement with video games from 1973 to mid 1974. At the time Allied Leisure had ceased doing video games following a fire which destroyed their manufacturing plant on January 31st, 1974.
1 - The first exhibit is an invoice sheet for the order of 40 Tennis Tourney machines to Empire Distributing's Joe Robbins from August 16th, 1973, though with a few handwritten notes extending to the 29th. The sheet provides the truck number as well as the unit number of those shipped from Allied Leisure in Florida to Empire Distributing in Illinois.
2 - The second evidence sheet showcases a dismall order of the case 73 C 2682, Allied Leisure Industries v Midway Manufacturing from April 10th, 1974. The order was likely given as a result of the two parties becoming co-defendants in the Magnavox lawsuit, needing to settle any legal disputes before the April 15th filing.
3 - The third exhibit is a contract clarification between Allied Leisure and Universal Research Laboratories regarding the contract manufacturing and design of printed circuit boards for video games from July 9th, 1973. William E Olliges of URL promises for the time being that his company will only manufacture PC Boards for Allie Leisure's video games, excluding any potential uses for gambling devices. (At this time, Olliges may have been working with Bally on a video game gambling device, later patented as US 4648600.)
4 - Exhibit four shows a letter from William Olliges of URL to Allied Leisure regarding the shipment of the first Paddle Battle boards to Allie Lesiure from February 19th, 1973. It covers the fulfillments of their business agreement including payment and continued deliveries over the coming months.
5 - The final exhibit showcases a promotional flier by Control Sales - a division of URL - showcasing the Video Action console. The PC Board for the machine was created using spare Paddle Battle boards from URL. According to newspaper ads of the time, the console was to be commercially available shortly thereafter.
