Two items are in the news today in the ongoing story about table saw injuries. In Boston yesterday, the US Court of Appeals upheld a lower court ruling in the case of Carlos Osorio vs. One World Technologies, awarding Osorio $1.5 million for a job site injury. You can read the entire court decision here.

In Washington, D.C., Robert Adler, a member of the Consumer Product Safety Commission issued a statement about the vote to give advanced notice of a proposed rule regarding table saw injuries. In the statement, Adler mentions being impressed with the SawStop, and concerned about the number and severity of injuries to users of table saws, especially those older than 65. He also gives an indication of where the commission may be heading:

“Although I find myself extremely impressed by the SawStop technology, I am not in favor of writing a standard that would result in mandating a patented technology if such a result is avoidable.”
