NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. -- The family of a man who died after he was shocked with a taser by North Charleston police has sued. The Post and Courier of Charleston reports that the suit filed last month names North Charleston police, Charleston County and the company that makes the taser. The family of 38-year-old Kip Darrell Black says officers should have known he could die when they shocked him up to 10 times with a taser in October 2006. ... A Taser spokespuppet says the company has had 75 product liability lawsuits dismissed or ruled in its favor. [LINK]

And they have lost a "Failure to Warn" case to the tune of $6.2M.
Their corporate spin never openly admits these inconvenient details
