A Houston lawyer who is defending a California gun manufacturer from suits filed against the industry says a March 17 settlement between the government and Smith & Wesson won’t change his firm’s approach to the litigation. Robert Tarics, a partner in Tarics & Carrington, says his client isn’t about to agree to terms like Smith & Wesson accepted. That hard-line bargaining position ensures a steady flow of work for the four-lawyer Tarics & Carrington as it defends Phoenix Arms from 30 suits seeking monetary damages from gun makers and distributors.

“It has no impact,” Tarics says of the settlement in which Smith & Wesson agreed to put child-safety locks on its handguns and limit sales at gun shows. “We are going to have to defend the cases because we feel our client has been unjustly sued.”
