If there were ever a glaring example of the urgent need for tort reform in this country, this is it! Only the combination of leech lawyers, the Sawstop folks among them, along with moronic juries could produce such an outlandish and ridiculous award. This award is akin to the award a jury handed down to a woman who spilled hot coffee on herself at a McDonalds.
It is only a matter of time before the Sawstop people will reap what they have sown here... One of their devices, that has created an expectation of safety, will fail to operate properly.
I would NEVER consider the purchase of one of their devices. The strong arm tactics they have attempted with the saw manufacturers and the litany of lawsuits are severely harming the industry and the country.
I find their actions wholly reprehensible.
