Taser loses liability suit
Story was here, but a comment made a good point--why link to a Bloomberg story? They lost a federal verdict for a million in actuals plus five mill in punitives. Officers used several Tasers on a fellow who was apparently high on meth. and his heart stopped. The jury found for the officers, but against Taser, on the theory that it had inadequately warned users against risks. Sounds thin to me, but the jury bought it.
