The Atlanta Journal-Constitution covers a new lawsuit brought by law firms Bailey Glasser and Wheeles Garmon. David Selby II, partner and Mass Tort Practice Group chair is leading the litigation on behalf of Bailey Glasser. “The guns fire without pulling the trigger, and they fire when they shouldn’t fire,” Selby told AJC.
The article delves into a nationwide class action lawsuit filed on Friday in Georgia against firearm manufacturer and distributor Taurus, which seeks to have Taurus institute a robust notice and recall program. It is our position that the pistols cannot be repaired.
The suit alleges, among other things, violations of Georgia’s Uniform Deceptive Trade Practices Act and seeks unspecified damages to compensate thousands of affected gun owners, including the profits Taurus made from producing the allegedly defective firearms and notes that “[f]or years, (the Taurus companies) have knowingly manufactured, marketed, and distributed thousands of defective (GX4) pistols to consumers . . . Specifically, the defect causes the trigger of the [GX4] pistols to move rearward when the pistol is subjected to an impact or dropped.”
“We certainly anticipate there unfortunately will be more (harmful incidents) because the guns are out there,” Selby said.
