Serial litigant and manufacturer of stunguns that are more dangerous than they'll admit, Taser International, heads to court in BC on Monday in an amazingly bald-faced attempt to subvert the conclusion of the Braidwood Inquiry.
Canadian Press - ...The BC government will ask the court to toss the weapon manufacturer's legal challenge of the findings from Braidwood's report from the first phase of a public inquiry prompted by the death of Robert Dziekanski at Vancouver's airport. The 550-page report released last year found that a jolt from a taser could be fatal, and the weapons' use should be restricted. Arizona-based Taser, which has a long history of litigation against any suggestion the stun guns are unsafe [even though they are unsafe, especially (it appears) the X26], responded with a blistering legal challenge alleging bias on the part of Braidwood, the inquiry's lead lawyer and a medical expert involved with the proceedings. The province has now filed its own equally biting reply, calling Taser's petition "offensive and abusive." ...
Taser International's lawyer, David Neave, would be well-advised to arrange some soft mattresses and pads in front of the courthouse steps.
My guess is '25 to 30 feet' (*).
(* How far he'll fly when tossed out of court..)
