Wrongful Death - Product Liability - Smith v. TASER

Mr. Glas and Ms. Theard filed and had granted a Motion for Summary Judgment in a wrongful death case against client TASER International, Inc. The plaintiff in this case went into cardiac arrest soon after receiving a touch stun to his right upper back. Deutsch Kerrigan obtained an affidavit signed by the coroner confirming that the TASER exposure did not cause or contribute to the death, and then forwarded a draft motion for summary judgment to the plaintiff's counsel. When the plaintiff's counsel refused to voluntarily dismiss the case with prejudice, Mr. Glas and Ms. Theard filed the successful motion. The case was dismissed with prejudice by Judge Berrigan.
