Last year a jury awarded $101.2 million to Medtronic, finding that NuVasive had infringed on three of the company's spine implant patents. Medtronic sought a permanent injunction of the verdict to prevent further sales of those products, which the district court judge denied in tentative and non-binding rulings on the post-trial motions, according to the report.
After the denial, NuVasive shares rose over 19 percent until the market closed for the day.
