Fla. Lawsuit Thrown Out Against TASER in Death

NEW YORK (Reuters) - Stun gun maker Taser International Inc. on Friday said a death lawsuit filed against it was dismissed with prejudice, which prohibits any re-filing of the suit.

The lawsuit, which was filed in a Florida district court in March, claimed that a Taser M26 stun gun had killed a Florida man. The medical examiner''s report cited illegal drugs and said the death was unrelated to the use of the stun gun, according to a company statement.

Media reports of potential links between dozens of deaths of criminal suspects subdued by police with Taser stun guns have dogged the company in recent months. Taser has called those reports unfounded and said no deaths have occurred as a direct result of its technology.

The Scottsdale, Arizona company''s stock is up 3.83 percent this week on contracts for weapons and accessories from the U.S. military and the Dayton, Ohio police department.

Shares of Taser closed at $43.70 on Thursday on the Nasdaq.
