January 25, 2019 / By FINK DENSFORD

The U.S. Federal Circuit Court of Appeals this week affirmed a nearly $24 million verdict in favor of a physician inventor in a patent spat with medtech giant Medtronic (NYSE:MDT), according to recently released court documents.

In February 2014, Dr. Mark Berry filed a suit against Medtronic alleging that Fridley, Minn.-based Medtronic infringed on three patents covering a “system and method for aligning vertebrae in the amelioration of aberrant spinal column deviation conditions.”
