Beaumont jury awards $20.34 million in medical device case

Last week a Beaumont jury in Chief Judge Ron Clark’s court returned a verdict in favor off the plaintiff in Barry v. Medtronic, which dealt with devices used in scoliosis surgeries.  It found all the asserted claims infringed and willfully so, and that none of the defensive issues had been shown by clear and convincing evidence.  It awarded a total of $20,346,390.
