Short Take: Digital gets RSI verdict thrown out

Digital Equipment has succeeded in its bid to overturn the final award in the only trial that won money for computer keyboard users claiming injury from typing, Bloomberg reported. In 1996 Digital, owned by Compaq, appealed the $293,385 award, which was the last to survive of three verdicts totaling $5.9 million. The reversal is one more victory in the computer industry's near-perfect record in suits over injuries allegedly caused by their machines.
