I can't imagine how a company is responsible for someone else's patented technology. While Sawstop's technology is a marvel and likely will one day be incorporated as a standard feature on every saw one day, if it isn't a mandated safety requirement, I just can't see how they won. Maybe Sawstop ought to sue Mr. Osorio for not buying their product? Maybe the State of New York ought to be sued for allowing saws to be sold which lack Sawstop's safety technology? Perhaps if Mr. Osorio had cut off his knee, the court could've more easily seen that he didn't have a "leg" to stand on.
