Taser Wins Another Suit

As the world's largest maker of electronic stun guns, Taser International has faced its fair share of wrongful death or injury lawsuits. However, the company has come out on top within the past 18 months, winning 11 straight courtroom victories.

The most recent victory involved a lawsuit two plaintiffs filed in Michigan's Macomb Country Circuit Court claiming they were injured in training sessions with the company's stun gun. On Jan. 9 the court entered an order dismissing the case with prejudice.

"We are very pleased that this litigation was dismissed by order of the U.S. District Court for failure to state a claim upon which relief can be granted," said Doug Klint, vice president and general counsel of Taser International. "We feel vindicated by this dismissal, and we will continue our ongoing strategy of aggressively defending this type of litigation."

Just a few days prior to the Michigan ruling, a District Court for the Northern District of Texas found in favor of Taser in a wrongful death claim suit involving a man who was struck with the device during an incident with police.
