I don't know who is more stupid the judge who awarded this settlement or the guy using the saw. This guy however is definitely an idiot! You get what you pay for, pay crap and that is what you get. Not that he deserved to get hurt but woodworking is/can be dangerous and crap happens. We all take this into consideration when we get into this hobby and accept this. If he was so concerned with safety then he should have bought the Sawstop and not have an unreal expectation that a bottom line saw have features of a top of the line saw.
This goes to show that even the stupid can get rich.
