TASER International Announces Three More Product Liability Lawsuits Dismissals

February 14, 2008  | 

TASER International announced the dismissal with prejudice of the wrongful death product liability lawsuits filed against TASER International in the following cases: Fernandez v. TASER International, Inc., et al. filed in the United States District Court for the Northern District of California; LeBlanc v. TASER International, Inc., et al. filed in the United States District Court for the Central District of California; and Moreno, et al. v. TASER International, Inc., et al. filed in the Superior Court of the State of California, Los Angeles County, Central District.

"We are very pleased that the plaintiffs decided not to pursue these lawsuits against TASER International and agreed to voluntary dismiss TASER International with prejudice," said Doug Klint, Vice President and General Counsel of TASER International. "We believe the primary reason for these voluntary dismissals is the lack of any credible evidence that the TASER device played any causal role in these unfortunate deaths as well as the overwhelming medical and scientific evidence confirming the general safety of TASER technology."

These dismissals represent the 64th, 65th, and 66th wrongful death or injury lawsuits that have been dismissed or judgment entered in favor of TASER International. No moneys were paid for these new dismissals. This number includes a small number of law enforcement officer training injury lawsuits that were settled and dismissed in cases where the settlement economics to TASER International were significantly less than the cost of litigation. TASER International has not lost any product liability lawsuit.
