Jury finds Intuitive Surgical’s training practices NOT at fault
Jurors reached a 10-2 verdict after a 5-week trial. Intuitive Surgical owes no damages based on claims by the family that Intuitive had inadequately trained the doctor who performed the operation.
The win may reduce the steam in the kettle of the pending class action suits about false claims by the company regarding their financial performance.
In after hours trading, as news of the verdict came out, the stock (NASDAQ:ISRG) rose to $498, a 5% gain for the day and night.
