Product Liability - Fahy v. TASER International, Inc., et al.
In 2012, Mr. Glas served as lead trial counsel for TASER in the traumatic brain injury action entitled Fahy v. TASER International, Inc., et al. No. 0922-CC-10076-01, Circuit Court of the City of St. Louis, MO. Mr. Glas successfully defended TASER against claim their product caused a 17 year-old to experience cardiac arrest and anoxic brain injury. During that trial, Mr. Glas made the difficult decision not to call any of the eleven expert witnesses retained by TASER to testify regarding the issues of defect notice, warnings, medical causation, and damages. Instead, when plaintiff rested, Mr. Glas immediately rested, thereby precluding plaintiff from calling rebuttal witnesses. During closing argument, plaintiff demanded $12 million plus punitive damages, and the jury found TASER was not liable.
