A Georgia federal judge has reduced by $9 million the damage award granted by an Atlanta jury last year against Wright Medical Technology. This was the first bellwether trial in multidistrict litigation over the allegedly defective metal hip implant. The company’s bid for a new trial was rejected by U.S. District Judge William S. Duffey. The judge left intact the $1 million in compensatory damages the jury awarded to Robyn Christiansen for complications arising from her Wright Conserve Hip Implant System. However, the punitive damages award was reduced from $10 million down to $1.1 million.
