UPDATE ON TRIAL DATE FOR DIGITAL’S LITIGATION AGAINST AXON

Lenexa, KS, Jan. 17, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Digital Ally, Inc. (DGLY), which develops, manufactures and markets advanced video surveillance products for law enforcement, homeland security and commercial applications, announces a development in its legal battle against Axon Enterprise, Inc. (“Axon,” formerly TASER International, Inc.). At the hearing yesterday, both parties expressed a desire to set a trial date and the Court took the issue under advisement. A trial date will be forthcoming.  

The Company filed its case in the United States District for the District of Kansas against Axon on January 14, 2016, alleging that Axon has, and continues, to willfully infringe Digital’s ‘452 Patent, which covers its auto-activation technology. 

“We were excited to meet with the Court and discuss the trial. We were glad to hear that both parties were looking to set a trial date. We are looking forward to the judge setting that date and moving forward to present our case to a jury,” said Digital Ally’s CEO, Stanton E. Ross. “We are also looking forward to a pre-trial conference on August 28, 2019 in our patent infringement lawsuit against Enforcement Video, LLC (d/b/a WatchGuard Video), at which we believe a trial date will be set,” concluded Ross.
