That would be incorrect. The jury awarded a supersized verdict. The court itself lowered it to $650,000. BOTH parties appealed. But before the appeal they settled confidentially. Tho rumors persist that the settlement was very close to the original verdict. I don't believe anyone knows the exact settlement (other than the parties of course). And yes, it is a poster child for frivolous.
