( 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.

"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."
