SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- The Utah Attorney General's Office plans to file a claim against the manufacturer of defective bulletproof vests -- once again.

Attorney General Mark Shurtleff says he plans to file a second claim against Second Chance Body Armor to get Utah's money back for more than 70 vests it purchased from the company.

Shurtleff is seeking more than 45-thousand dollars in reimbursements.

In 2004, the state reached a 200-thousand dollar settlement with Second Chance over its Ultima and Ultimax vests that failed to stop bullets and deteriorated when exposed to heat, light and humidity.

The AG's claim is expected to be filed by the end of the month.
