Leatt Corporation Gets Court Order

CAPE TOWN, SOUTH AFRICA--(Marketwire - December 11, 2008) - Leatt Corporation, a Nevada corporation (PINKSHEETS: LEAT)("Company" or Leatt Corporation"), announced today that a South African High Court granted Leatt Corporation's request for a restraining order against Karl Ebel and Grant Nelson, former employees of Leatt Corporation, which order temporarily restrains them from disclosure of proprietary information about and commercial exploitation of the Leatt Brace ® Moto-R prototype 2.

The injunction was granted on December 5, 2008 and will remain in force until resolution of Leatt Corporation's pending legal proceeding against Mr. Ebel, Mr. Williams and Mr. Nelson in the South African court. Leatt Corporation alleges that the former employees are selling a neck brace (through a California company) that is based on and violates Leatt Corporation's intellectual property rights; that neck brace is sold under the name "DefNder." Leatt Corporation intends to vigorously pursue its claims in this matter.
