Jurors reached a 10-2 verdict after a 5-week trial. Intuitive Surgical owes no damages based on claims by the family that Intuitive had inadequately trained the doctor who performed the operation.

In after hours trading, and then during the trading day, as news of the verdict came out, the stock (NASDAQ:ISRG) rose to $501, a 5% gain.
