Digital Ally Once Again Defeats Axon–s Attempt to Invalidate Digital–s –452 Patent




LENEXA, KS — (Marketwired) — 08/03/17 — Digital Ally, Inc. (NASDAQ: DGLY) (“Digital” or the “Company”), which develops, manufactures and markets advanced video surveillance products for law enforcement, homeland security and commercial applications, today announces yet another significant victory in its legal battles against Axon Enterprise, Inc. (“Axon,” formerly known as TASER International, Inc.).

Digital Ally is pleased to announce another significant victory in protecting its patents from infringement by Axon. Axon–s final attempt to invalidate the claims of Digital Ally–s –452 Patent in front of the U.S. Patent Office failed today with the Patent Office–s decision to decline to institute an IPR. As previously reported, Axon filed two inter partes reviews (IPR) against Digital Ally–s –452 Patent. On July 6, 2017, the U.S. Patent Office denied institution of Axon–s first IPR on the –452 Patent, finding that Axon had not established even a reasonable likelihood that the challenged claims would be found unpatentable after completion of an IPR trial. Today, the U.S. Patent Office issued a decision denying institution of Axon–s second IPR on the –452 Patent. This brings an end to Axon–s attempts to invalidate the –452 Patent at the U.S. Patent Office. Although this last IPR filed by Axon attempted to invalidate claims that are not currently asserted against Axon in the pending litigation, Axon has now twice unsuccessfully attempted to invalidate claims in the –452 Patent. Axon is now statutorily barred from filing any further IPRs against the –452 Patent, as well as against the –292 Patent.

In the four total IPRs that Axon filed against Digital Ally–s –292 and –452 Patents, Axon has lost on three of the IPRs. The result of the fourth IPR, which only challenges certain claims of the –292 Patent, has yet to be decided by the Patent Office, with a decision expected to be rendered approximately in the first quarter of 2018. For the fourth and only remaining IPR, Digital Ally is vigorously defending Axon–s claims of unpatentability and is looking forward to confirming the uniqueness of its innovation.
