In March 2019, a class-action lawsuit
was filed against Point Blank Enterprises for allegedly misleadingly marketing bullet proof vests made using the company’s proprietary “Self-Suspending Ballistic System” as being “highly effective” and providing “optimal protective coverage” for a minimum of five years when, according to plaintiffs, the vests have a defect that causes them to fall apart before the end of five years.

, Case No. 19-cv-1542, C. D. CA.)
