The $27.6 million awarded to a woman and her husband who said she was injured while taking part in a promotional video for an artificial knee implant should not be reduced, a Philadelphia judge has ruled.

Philadelphia Common Pleas Court Judge Frederica A. Massiah-Jackson entered judgment for plaintiffs Margo and Daniel Polett June 10, ordering that Margo Polett be paid $19.6 million in damages and Daniel Polett be paid $700,000 in damages. Massiah-Jackson said in an opinion last month that she was adopting that June 10 decision as the opinion required under Pennsylvania Rule of Appellate Procedure 1925 because the case is now pending with the state Superior Court.
