A doctor suing Medtronic last week won $20.3 million in damages after a federal jury in Texas found that the company infringed his patents covering spinal deformity repair devices.

Dr. Mark Barry sued Medtronic in February 2014 in the U.S. District Court for Eastern Texas, alleging infringement of a trio of patents covering a “System and method for aligning vertebrae in the amelioration of aberrant spinal column deviation conditions.” (The 3rd patent was later dropped from the suit; Barry licenses the patents to Zimmer Biomet (NYSE:ZBH)).
