Taser Settles Lawsuits

In a significant reversal of its previous public stance, Taser International, Inc. has decided to settle the lawsuits against it for $20 million. The settlements would eliminate cases pending before the US District Court in Arizona and the Delaware Chancery Court. The settlement would also mean that the company would be able to escape any presumption or admission of wrongdoing. The lawsuits began piling up after use of the stun gun resulted in many deaths.
