A New York judge has overturned a landmark $5.3 million award against Digital Equipment in a repetitive strain industry (RSI) case, in the light of new evidence that suggests injuries to the plaintiff were not caused by use of a Digital keyboard.
Patricia Geressy won her claim for damages against Digital last December when a jury decided that she was suffering from wrist injuries caused by using a Digital keyboard in her workplace at the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey. But new evidence in the form of Geressy?s medical report attributed her wrist injury to an existing neck condition.
Digital was criticised by the jury for not attaching warning notices about the dangers of RSI to its keyboards in line with other PC manufacturers. A Digital spokesman welcomed the overturning of the award, adding: "We have maintained and continue to maintain that our keyboards are safe."
