Digital Ally Asserts Claims Against Utility Associates Arising Out of False Press Release Claiming That Utility Had Sued Digital for Patent Infringement

LENEXA, KS--(Marketwired - Jun 12, 2014) - Digital Ally, Inc. (NASDAQ: DGLY) ("Digital" or the "Company"), the industry leader in law enforcement video technology, today announced that it has asserted new claims against competitor Utility Associates, Inc. ("Utility") arising out of Utility's publication of a false press release on June 4, 2014.

In its June 4, 2014 press release, Utility claimed to have filed a suit against Digital for "patent infringement" in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Georgia. Digital has determined that in fact Utility has not filed any kind of suit against Digital, whether in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Georgia or in any other District Court of the United States. As a result of Utility's issuance and publication of this false, untrue and deceptive press release, Digital has now amended its complaint in the action that Digital filed against Utility in the United States District Court for the District of Kansas on June 4, 2014 to include claims against Utility for false advertising in violation of Section 45 of the Lanham (Trademarks) Act.

"Digital requests actual and consequential damages, attorneys' fees and the issuance of an injunction prohibiting Utility from making further untrue statements in the future," stated Stanton E. Ross, Chief Executive Officer of Digital Ally, Inc.
