UPDATE: TASER Obtains Defense Verdict in Missouri Litigation

TASER International (NASDAQ: TASR), a global provider of safety technologies that protect life and protect truth, announced that the jury in the Circuit Court of the City of St. Louis, Missouri in the case entitled Colin Fahy v. TASER International, Inc. rendered a defense verdict for TASER and found that TASER was not liable for Mr. Fahy's cardiac arrest.

The winning team attorneys for Defendant TASER International, Inc. include: John Jerry Glas of Deutsch, Kerrigan & Stiles, L.L.P; David T. Ballard of Barnes & Thornburg, L.L.P.; and William Ray Price of Armstrong Teasdale L.L.P.

The attorneys for the Plaintiff Colin Fahy include William T. Dowd of Dowd & Dowd, P.C.; John Burton of the Law Offices of John Burton; and Peter M. Williamson of Williamson Law Firm. Plaintiff's causation expert witness was Douglas Zipes, MD. In a related matter this week, a Federal Court in Missouri disqualified Dr. Zipes as an expert on the issues of warnings, testing, and design defects.

"We are very pleased that the jury returned a defense verdict in favor of TASER," said Doug Klint, President and General Counsel of TASER International. "We intend to continue our vigorous defense of all litigation. During the last 14 months, TASER has been successful in winning voluntary dismissals or judgments for dismissal in 35 product liability lawsuits. We believe our strategy to pursue the truth in defense of our technology and products is yielding success as the rate of new litigation has fallen to historically low rates."
