Exmark Manufacturing, a Nebraska-based unit of the Toro Co., has been awarded $24.3 million in a patent infringement lawsuit against Briggs & Stratton. The jury agreed with the Plaintiffs’ contention that Briggs & Stratton violated a patent for a mulching mower deck with multiple blades. The jury also decided redesigned versions of the mower don’t infringe on the patent. An Exmark spokesman said the company will continue to defend its innovations. A Briggs & Stratton spokeswoman said her company will seek to overturn the verdict on appeal. Exmark is part of Bloomington, Minn.-based Toro.
