General Electric says it will seek judicial review to overturn a recent jury order to pay Fonar $110 million for patent infringement. Fonar is a manufacturer of MRI systems based in Melville, New York, with sales of around $20 million a year. On the chances of having the verdict overturned, GE points out that another jury verdict against Johnson & Johnson based on one of the two patents at issue in the GE case was subsequently overturned by the courts.
