Kellie Lerner Named Interim Co-Lead Class Counsel in Taser And Body Camera Antitrust Litigation

November 20, 2023

New York Lawyer Kellie Lerner

Robins Kaplan LLP is pleased to announce that partner Kellie Lerner has been appointed interim co-lead counsel on behalf of plaintiffs in In Re Axon Vievu Antitrust Litigation, a significant class action alleging that Axon Enterprise, Inc. artificially increased the price of key law enforcement equipment.

The appointment follows a recent order by the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey consolidating three Axon antitrust cases. The consolidated cases collectively allege that Axon monopolized the taser and body camera market through strategic acquisitions and contractual agreements, hindering competition, and inflating prices. These alleged actions have cost purchasers—including potentially thousands of police departments and civilians—significant amounts of money.

Lerner, along with her co-lead class counsel, will play a key role in managing motions, overseeing discovery proceedings, leading settlement negotiations, and representing the plaintiffs’ interests throughout the legal process.

"Recognizing the vital role that body cameras and tasers play in ensuring safe and effective law enforcement, I’m dedicated to working on behalf of plaintiffs to safeguard the competitiveness of the market for these tools,” Lerner said.
