"We are very pleased that the plaintiffs agreed to voluntarily dismiss TASER International with prejudice from this litigation," said Doug Klint, Vice President and General Counsel of TASER International. "The driving force behind this recent trend of voluntary dismissals is the extensive and overwhelming medical and scientific evidence confirming the general safety of TASER technology.

We will continue to aggressively defend any litigation filed against TASER International and pursue sanctions and costs against plaintiffs for frivolous litigation," concluded Klint.
This lawsuit dismissal represents the sixty third (63rd) wrongful death or injury lawsuits that have been dismissed or judgment entered in favor of TASER International. This number includes a small number of police 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.
