I'm patting myself on the back for this one. (Just for myself, that I still can read how the law controls jury verdicts).

This is HUGE for Taser. The plaintiffs might not even appeal because the law is so clear... IF there was negligence, it was not significantly on Taser's part.

(Cali uses the doctrine of contributory negligence. I'm sure the judge found the dead idiot mostly at fault, followed by so-called poor police training; and Taser will be required to put big warning labels saying: "As you have been warned repeatedly, use only as directed or you will be sued."

If this is appealed, the plaintiff will lose. In the meantime, any suits that are file will only be to beat the statute of limitations. Our brave plaintiff lawyers aren't going to risk a dime more than they have to until this is clarified.

Taser's strategy to stand firm on these trash lawsuits is about to pay off.

Now all TASR needs is an alliance or takeover by a firm big enough to sue the scum frivilous plaintiff attorneys out of the business of harassing Taser.
