In addition to Secret Xpress Control, there have been many brands/products involved in recent cases, but none as “mysterious” as the emergency choking device. Although it is the same product involved in the case again, the plaintiff is different from the previous case.

Plaintiff 1: LIFE VAC LLC

LIFE VAC LLC filed lawsuits for infringement on March 9 and April 14, both represented by THOITS LAW firm, with case numbers 23-cv-2013 and 23-cv-2360, respectively, mainly for trademark infringement + copyright infringement.

DCSTAR INC filed a patent infringement lawsuit on April 14th and April 21st, represented by Sullivan & Carter LLP, with case numbers 23-cv-2355 and 23-cv-2522, mainly accusing patent infringement.
