Jury sides with Ryobi in tablesaw liability lawsuit

I only looked at this today. <http://www.woodmagazine.com/blogs/woodworking-blog/2012/08/14/jury-sides - with-ryobi-in-tablesaw-liability-lawsuit/>
"About 2 years after a Massachusetts jury awarded Carlos Osorio $1.5 million when he mangled his hand in an accident with a Ryobi tablesaw (a verdict that is still under appeal), an Illinois jury has found in favor of Ryobi and its parent company, One World Technologies, in a similar product- liability lawsuit."
Has anyone seen more recent news on this? Seems to me this should have been the verdict in the Osorio case as well ...
Now the appealing lawyers (oxymoron in the pun) will have a field day.

Holy crap, Batman! Did you say an "Illinois" jury? This only proves that not everyone in a blue state is a liberal idiot.

Most of Illinois gets a bad rap. For example, Obama is slightly ahead of Romney, 54-35. But no polls have been taken since February (according to Real Clear Politics). Who knows what the current thinking might be?

*Slightly*? <guffaw>

In Illinois? It's just as bad as California (and worse than New York).
