TAMPA, Fla. , June 9 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Stinger Systems, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: STIY), the leader in electro-stun technology, today announced that the "claims construction" or "Markman" bench trial in Taser v. Stinger (U.S. District Court for the District of Arizona Case) (Nasdaq: TASR) had concluded, and that the federal judge in the case will now be rendering her rulings interpreting as a matter of law the meaning of the patent claims that Taser alleges Stinger has infringed. Absent the judge's ruling, Stinger has, as a practical matter, been unable to move under federal procedures for dismissal of Taser's allegations. Stinger will however now move for dismissal, as soon as reasonably possible after it receives the judge's rulings.
In pleadings, Stinger System's, Inc. has requested that Taser be ordered to pay Stinger fees for an egregious case, implying that Taser's suit is both specious and dubiously motivated. Taser moved early in the case to discover information on the technology used to produce the Stinger S-200's new less power TRU PULSE (TM) shock waveforms, and agreed to an unusually restrictive protective order to obtain the information. Taser is no longer even asserting any of the allegations of patent infringement that it originally filed against Stinger, though the patent case continues.
Nationally recognized authorities on stun weapon technology consider
Stinger's new TRU PULSE (TM) waveform to be the first fundamental advance in
stun weapon technology since John Cover's invention of the Taser over thirty
years ago. The S-200's new patent pending TRUE PULSE (TM) waveform shocks more
efficiently (less current) than the waveforms of prior art Tasers. Therefore,
the S-200's shock violent assailants with less electrical power to achieve
comparable disabling effects with less pain. H.P. White Laboratory, Inc.

Stinger Systems, Inc. responsibly produces and sells its S-200 projectile
stun gun as a firearm and dangerous weapon only for use by trained and
experienced law enforcement officers. Stinger makes no warranty that its
projectile stun guns cannot kill, but only that they are less likely to kill
than conventional firearms, and therefore can be of life saving benefit when
used responsibly by trained and experienced officers. Furthermore,
manufacturers of firearms, like the S-200 projectile stun gun, have the
protections of the federal Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act, that is
