LENEXA, KS--(Marketwired - Jan 17, 2017) - Digital Ally, Inc. (NASDAQ: DGLY) (the "Company" or "Digital"), which develops, manufactures and markets advanced video surveillance products for law enforcement, homeland security and commercial applications, was disappointed to learn that the U.S. District Court for the District of Kansas dismissed its allegations that TASER International, Inc. has improperly secured contracts with police precincts nationwide in violation of antitrust and unfair competition statutes. TASER's conduct has been well documented (http://www.koat.com/article/apd-taser-deal-to-be-investigated-again/5069855), and it is unfortunate that the Court will not allow Digital to address this conduct in its lawsuit. The Company believes that conduct of this type, along with no-bid contracts, ultimately harms taxpayers by preventing police precincts from making fully considered decisions regarding their chosen technology. Digital is assessing its options regarding the appeal of the dismissed claims.
The Court's order, however, has no impact on balance of Digital's claims in the lawsuit that TASER is infringing Digital's patents directed to an ecosystem for automatically activating law enforcement recording devices. Digital's pioneering inventions ensure law enforcement recording devices are on and capturing all pertinent evidence when officers respond to emergency situations, even when officers forget to activate the cameras themselves. Precincts across the country have recognized the ground-breaking nature of these patents and are demanding this technology. Digital believes that TASER has grown its own market share on the back of Digital's innovations because it was unable to develop its own solution. Digital will continue to aggressively pursue its claims that TASER has willfully infringed its patents.
